So it’s been a busy last few months in the background, which is why there haven’t been as many posts on |StartingGrid| Between work, and getting ready for the 2015 race season, I haven’t taken the chance to post like I’d like. (I still have a season-end karting post that I’ve been meaning to get out.)
However, in the meantime, here is a transporter jumping over a F1 car, because cool things are cool. 😉

Maybe that's just me, but I like it 😉 Hearing the 2.9 Twin Turbo V8 of the 288 being used as it should, just makes my car-guy heart valves flutter. Since we never got to see a 288 GTO really used in competition, this is the closest that we'll probably get to see one being used in anger.
Besides, there is nothing more frustrating than seeing a supercar sit idle, so props to these 'Tax the Rich' guys for using the car as it should.
