“If everything is under control, you are going too slow.”
– Mario Andretti
After an F1 race early in his career Jackie Stewart mentioned to Jimmy Clark how he almost lost it on a corner. Clark was aghast as he reckoned that if you were not always in the condition of “almost losing it” you were not competing.
Having done a bit of road courses my self as well as having been a passenger while a professional driver was at the wheel I can completely agree.
I’m definitely a car girl. I’ve been to Skip Barber’s racing school at Laguna Seca where we drove Formula cars on the track – an experience I will never forget.
