“Motor racing shares in common with sex the distinction of being one of the most popular, most maligned and least understood of human activities” [Jim Fuerstenberg]

Faster. Faster. Faster, until the thrill of speed erases every fear, thought and responsibility. The risk is what draws me in, captivating me with horsepower; a duplicitous bastard that seduces me with freedom yet can end my life in an instant. But in my opinion, if your not on the edge, the edge of insanity and control you really need to hit the gas pedal. This. This is the romance of racing and why I keep going back to her, falling deeper in love. Maybe you think I need to get a life. Maybe you think I’m crazy. But that’s just it. Unless you’ve sat behind an engine with a couple hundred of horses revving through it, I don’t care what you have to say. Racing is a way of life. But I’ll warn you, don’t start unless you really want it. The adrenaline and euphoria will get under your skin and into your blood stream. And good luck, you’re hooked. Racing is about what’s ahead. That’s all that matters. So don’t look at me like I drive a shiny car around for fun and your entertainment. Because this has a B20B engine with dual circuit break system under its hood and it’s has 120 horsepower isn’t cut for everyone. [Steve Axel]
