Fun morning drive down to @lamborghini.tunbridgewells with @lawrence_samuel and everyone from @surreycarmeet 🏎. Thanks Alex for organising!
For me sports cars is all about the thrill, adrenaline and heart rate pumping. Anything with some excitement gets me going, one reason I compete bodybuilding. I don’t get that into the detail of specifications, I think cars can be works of art although I prefer the beauty of nature and architecture. However, give me fast acceleration, g force around the bends plus lil bit of risk involved and I’ll sign up all day. What I love most is trying to push the car to its limits, fit through an impossible gap, hit the (imaginary 😂) apex, time the upshift perfectly - definitely played too much need for speed when I was younger.
Lil rocket pants did good today, holding her own against some big boys. The A45 surely must be the best ‘performance car’ for that kind of money - for application on uk roads at least, a lot of these supercars can’t tap into their full potential on uk roads. The A45 is like a go kart, really grips those bends with its AWD, solid in the wet like today, the sound of the turbo kicking in is music to the ears and the 4Matic system has saved my ass a number of times haha. Also looks sick both inside and out and has element of class without being too boy racer, in my opinion. It self-parks which is handy, too.
Going to be a real shame to possibly see her go this October but it’ll be for the best both financially and for safety as I’m sure anyone who has been in my car or for a drive with will attest 😂. I am basically the stig so it’s not an issue IMO but gotta be sensible and all of that...
I think a much better setup for me would be a standard road car, even electric - save the environment ✌🏼. And then own or rent a track car that sits in storage and comes out just for racing in controlled environments. That would be a very expensive hobby and I’m sure there’s plenty of other cheaper ways I could get my kick, but we’ll see 😄.
For now though imma make the most of having rocket pants a while longer and over what will hopefully be a sunny summer 2020 here in London.
