Today I drove a Ferrari around Silverstone’s Grand Prix circuit. Well technically it was around Silverstone’s Stowe Circuit, which is a little smaller, but never mind - because it was still Silverstone.
It was a present given to me for my 40th, after my brilliant Mum, Dad, Brother and Sister all chipped in to buy it. I am loving their work, because it was fantastic.
So fantastic that I’m lost for words, so I’ll let pictures do the talking. Scroll down to the bottom to see the full video of me in action. It is safe to say that I have absolutely no talent whatsoever, an inability to change ‘flappy paddle’ gears successfully, an impressive ability to beep the horn instead of changing said gears, and a complete lack of foot-hand-eye coordination. The keen eyed among you will note that I managed an all-time top speed of 104mph, which my instructor lies about, in an effort to make it sound better – and still has to waffle a bit to help out. Trust me, it was fast enough for me!
However, I absolutely loved every minute of my experience, from the moment we drove in through the main gate, to the moment we drove out of it.
