If you’re into cars, you’ve joked about it at least once. What would happened if someone took a Formula 1 car to a track day. Well, some clever old guy took an Arrows A22 F1 car out to a club day, and had a go! Watch as basically he just crushes everything out there *and then probably brags to his friends that he does everything “flat out”*.;)
Long story short, this needs to be one of the things I do now. 😉

Alex Zanardi is such a champion, who is much more than just from his racing.
Sure, he’s raced in Formula 1. He’s won the CART series title two years in a row. He’s raced touring cars and won the gold medal in the 2012 Paralympic Games after losing his legs in a horrible crash in 2001. Still, Zanardi is much more than that.
Formula E. Home of the all electric formula car racing series, and all the ex-Formula 1 driving talent that you can get your hands on. The first race is coming in September, and so I’ve been doing a bit to find more information about the cars.
People always say that interviews with Formula 1 drivers are boring, and they give canned answers. Well if you put them and the journalist behind the wheel of a car, that problem seems to go away…mostly!
Well played, guys. Entertaining from start to finish.
PS: Lewis can do 80 to 90 push ups? I can do like 30 now before I get tired…
It’s a Friday, so I’m just going to leave you with some fun motorsports noises to get everyone excited for the weekend.
What are your weekend plans? I’ve got a practice day in the kart this weekend, tuning some setup pieces and shaking some rust off, while I wait for my new motor to arrive to prep for Gold Cup.
Also a new video project is in the works, so that should be coming soon! Have a good weekend!
If there are two things that we love here at Starting Grid, it’s karting and Formula 1. (Even when I moan endlessly about the ugly F1 cars and the rule changes…Even then.)
