Driving other peoples cars. Aug 12, 2010
From the Desk of: Tim Suddard
I have been driving a lot of other people’s race cars lately for stories we are working on. I have driven Dodge’s new Viper ACR/X, a Caymen Interseries car and Butch Kummer’s GTA stock car. It is interesting how all race cars do basically the same thing, yet do it so differently. This has been a rather high horsepower run of cars and these cars were all very, very fast. The politics of all this is so interesting, as you need to drive the cars fast enough to impress, but not fast enough to distress, or worse yet, crash. I think I will write a column on this topic in the near future.
