FERARRI ARE BACK
By John Lowe, Mar 29 2015 09:31AM
One of my ambitions as a teenager was always to drive a racing car, well there wasn't much chance of a coal miners son ever managing that but it did not stop me being a enthusiastic fan of motor sport, I took the second best option and rode motor cycles which probably took a few years off my parents lives, they thought I was dangerously fast, maybe I was. I realised part of my dream when Karen bought me a chance to drive and race a single seater Formula 200 car around Siverstone Race Track, it had two gears and was capable flat out of doing 150 miles per hour, after one lap i did not bother with the gears and instead just rode flat out round the ciruit, I was only past by two cars out of the fourteen racing, one turned out to be a rally driver the other would you beleive a motor cycle racer, so I was well pleased with my performance as a 65 year old. I have just watched the second race of the F1 season and enjoyed every minute of it, the technicalities of F1 are now mind blowing, putting the right tyres on for the circuit, super fast pit stops, setting the cars dynamics up for the best cornering, and much more, makes the simple task of getting the right set of darts simple, although the theory and thought are the same, today it wasthe return of Ferarri, back to where they belong right up there with the best, I drive a Mercedes so my loyalty tends to be with Lewis Hamilton, but nothing excites me more than seeing the gleaming red Prancing Horse tearing round the race track in front.
Now I am off to compete in a far more somber sport and throw a few arrows.
