Due to various technical issues (I was too busy goofing off in Malaysia to get some copy in to the editors) I’m not in the newest issue of Road&Track. I do, however, have a couple of features on the website.
First, a road (and track!) test of the stellar RenaultSport Megane RS265. This was a brilliant car and I feel humbled to have a chance to drive it around Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and the Sepang circuit.
Next, something rather morbid. Some time ago, I wrote a piece on Georgian drifter Giorgi Tevzadze in which I predicted his death. It never got published, possibly because it was a little too harsh on the man. As it happened, my prediction was correct, but Tevzadze died as a passenger, not a driver. My revamped piece is called Aimless Drifting. Car and Driver’s Jim Meigs said, regarding the piece: “How can you not love a piece that references Samuel Johnson, David Hume AND Robert De Niro?” Exactly!
