Wat oes t tae to mae a ast car go ast?
It means pushing the car to its very limit - and sometimes beyond - while avoid-ing the crash, the spin, the bobble that nixes the entire effort.There’s more to driving than
FAST 
.We’re talking
 ART 
, here.
Michaelangelo
used a hammer and chisel.
Rembrant 
used paint and brush.
 Juan Manuel Fangio
used throttle, steering wheel and brakes.All were artists and
 ALL
became legends. They drew crowds who admired theirskill and longed to emulate these legendary heroes.Sculptors and painters easily can chart their progress. Their successes and mis-takes are recorded in stone and paint.A stopwatch or winner’s flag helps a driver gauge his skill but they offer nounderstanding of good moves, better moves or “bleaah” moves.A driver needs to be able to examine “
THERE is where I can improve
”, and
THAT needs to be changed
”.With such an examination he can accelerate his search for the
 ART 
in his drivingperformance and understand those split-second maneuvers that evaporated asthey happened.E. Paul Dickinson
