This has turned out to be an exciting week, thanks to a day at Toronto Motorsports Park.
TMP isn’t the world’s greatest track — come to think of it, I can’t easily recall a track I’ve driven that struck me as less interesting — but it’s chock-full of great people. On Wednesday, I met up with the Radical Canada crew to try out the SR3 Supersport for a future feature in Road&Track. I hope you won’t skip buying the next issue just because I tell you here that the SR3 is just brilliant to drive. It offers a lot of the thrills you get in the Caterham/Dyson SP300R, for less than half the money.
Incidentally, that Caterham test from last November should be coming out in a month or two. This is my fault; I didn’t have it written when I was in the January accident and it took me a while to get my act together.
While I was in Toronto, I had the chance to sit down and play some music with a friend of mine. He was the buyer for MelodyBurner prototype #1 and I have to say that he sounds absolutely amazing jamming the thing through his Jimmy-Page-era Supro amp. Overall, it was a great trip with some great cars and great friends. I’m glad to be home, though, and to have a chance to hang out with my son for the weekend. Next week, it’s off to try out the Challenger Hellcat!
