The Vulcan was such a surprise to me, I never thought it would be something that Dad would buy or even begin to think that he would let me drive it! But here I was standing in the workshop looking at this beast of a car being built knowing that in just a few weeks I would be taking around Spa-Francorchamps!
I could not wait to get on that plane to Belgium but when I arrived at Spa and stood in the car park looking over Eau Rouge , I felt so sick! It looked so much more daunting then any track I had driven in the UK!
After spending half the day driving around the circuit with my coach in various different Astons, I got the nod, I was 'ready' to drive the Vulcan. The buzz was like no other! I was so proud of myself because at one point I could of quite easily just stood back and watch Dad drive! But I did it and I didn't stall it! (it's harder then it seems!)
The car was so capable it was unreal and the downforce was exceptional! I was astounded of just how good it was, even though I hadn't even experienced the other two power modes yet!
Onto the next one....or two!
After arriving home from Spa, I managed to squeeze a little nap before heading out in the F12 TDF following Dad in the La Ferrari on route to Silverstone for the Passione Ferrari event!
The day was jam packed with awesome cars including my dream car! The FXX-K!
I spent the day switching between driving the TDF & LaF on track with my coach.
The La Ferrari is just incredible to drive, every time I put my foot down I found myself thinking "really?! There's more?!" so much power but yet so elegant and dare I say...easy to drive, well compared to the TDF anyway!
The TDF,even though is a 'few' less horsepower then the LaF, what an animal! A real drivers car, needless to say, I struggled with it to start with, but the more I drove it, the more I liked it! The Virtual short wheel base and four wheel steer makes it drive like a small car and turn on a pin!
My coach for the day Daniel Lloyd giving the TDF a good go!
I even managed to squeeze in a cheeky little passenger ride in the 599 FXX
So to round things up.. this was my favourite week to date! There has been many close to it but to drive all these cars in one week, just wow!
