Back in the days when F1 cars passed each other on the track, rather than in the pits.

Bring back mechanical rather than aerodynamic grip.

Some drivers, like Alain prost, were in their day the fastest and safest in f1.

The next time you sit next to some person driving you about, ask yourself: are they taking the process a seriously as a pilot would in a light aircraft..

ahem, Carlos, cough.

And Vin Diesil was pretty choise in XXX and in The fast and the Furious!!

Or there is Jimmy Carr, who did mighty well on Top Gear...

Juha Karkkenen was pretty good. Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill have done well in different forms of motorsport.

And what about the legends of the Paris-Dakkar race? Those fellas a legends!!

I have a list of people who I could trust my life with when I'm in cars. It's very short and includes mostly truck drivers and competitive four wheel driving mates.

Oh and Juha Kankkunen is awesome!!

Juha Kankkunen, so THATS how you spell his name!! lol

The Stig gets a vote too!!

Two mates I trust, Pete and Craig. Pete grew up in a gravel road accesssed farm, legend with his skills. Craig, been track racing for donkeys, also did rally.

And me. Cos I am the best driver on the road, just like 95% of the other drivers in NZ.

I'm sure you're the best driver on the road, I am too, and so is every other idiot out there.

Exactly my point! lol

Saw some good stuff last night. Driving back into wgtn, at McKays crossing, two lanes merge to one. Merge like a zip, right?

Not the dumb arse behind us, oh no. He got to be close enough to almost touch us, so he could block out the next car to merge. Clever eh?

And you know what? It's not the young that seem to drive with the worst attitudes if you ask me. It's the middle aged to 60 somethings that don't like young folk cutting them off and taking their road from them.

ah well... we smiled and kept driving.

Nice

In Whakatane there was no such thing as multi laned roundabouts, until a few weeks ago when a series of complex roundabouts were put in for the new bunnings warehouse and mall. There was a small section inthe paper teaching the locals how to use them!! Bloody classic!!

When I was last home Dad and I were going to Kinleith in the logger and some idiot with an Alfa (no offence to any one with an Alfa) decided to overtake us with only 50 metres of clear road in front of him, we just held on and hoped like hell that he didn't go underneath us. Not to keen to be inthat situation ever again.

AGREED! the WRC drivers have the most amazing car control of any disciplines of motorsport. Circuit driving can be taught, tight line through corner to wide exit, braking points established..... although WRC drivers car control on gravel is something that cannot be taught, its pure skill, you either have it or u dont.

Thats is true but id like to see someone "teach" another on how the likes of Sumacher and Senna think, being an excellent driver is not down to straight speed, you have to be able to think and race smart. Those 2 drivers have sooo many races when they werent in the fastest car but they won because they are bothe very smart drivers. That type of instinct cannot be tought.
