Don’t get me wrong. I’d love to have an F1 car sitting down in the garage. Except it would mean the MINI would be out on the street. And while Newey probably has a slightly bigger garage than I do, it still seemed sort of strange. I mean, what is he going to do with it?
Turns out, the guy plans to get behind the wheel. All right, Adrian!
Here’s the news:
“The plan now is to club together with some other guys I know who are lucky enough to have cars and hire a circuit, preferably a modern one with a bit of run off where I can enjoy driving the car without worrying about having a spin in front of a crowd,” [Newey] said.
That’s a heck of a lot better than keeping it covered as an investment, huh?
So… honestly. Would you have the guts to take the car out on the track and risk both wrecking it and making yourself look like an idiot?
