Imagine you have a racetrack. Nobody’s on it but you. And nobody’s going to be on it. It’s 100% empty. What would you do?
If the answer is “screw around in a four-cylinder Camry and upset your brother,” then you are my kind of person.
This short video is one of many we took today during a day today at Nelson Ledges. My brother and I, along with SCCA ProSolo National Champion Marc Pfannenschmidt, had the track for the better part of the day. We wrung out my bro’s 2013 Boss 302, Marc’s Fiat Abarth 500, a mystery car you’ll have to buy an issue of R&T to find out about, and, of course, “my” car.

It can do the Kink at Ledges flat-out. Because it can only do 108mph going into the Kink.
Today was just one of those all-time great days. And this was some silliness at the very end. I don’t recommend that you drive around a racetrack no-handed, okay? And I don’t recommend that you use the E-brake on a racetrack. So you won’t do it.
