    Couple of in car footage from Santa Pods BMW show yesterday. First outing in the car :coolsteer) But it was a lot of fun and I'm really pleased with how she goes. One battle scar from the day - a tyre delaminated and bent my fuel cap #-o Aside from that the car was trouble free for the day. \m/

    Anyway couple of clips for your viewing pleasure ;)

    That looks like fun and good car control :D
    If I tried that I'd just end up going in circles or into a barrier.

    Excellent control there fella, drifting is a fantastic sport to watch.

    I tried this once in my old MR2 on the exit ramp of the A92 by Carnousite. I put the car straight up the curb and into some bushes. Luckily man and car were unscathed but I never tried it again...........
