What's your most surreal driving memory? Car Stories: 9 Second Drag Kart

We all had that 'perfect' moment.

1y ago

What's your most surreal driving memory? That time you managed to perfectly drift around a corner, or achieved near ballistic speed on the 1/4 mile. Perhaps a time when you recreated a scene from your favourite film franchise?

Whatever it was I would like to ask you, how did it feel? In my Car Stories series, I interviewed George who managed to fulfil one of his automotive dreams when he took his CBR600 engined Go-Kart (that run NOS) down the famous Pendine sands. For him, the moment was surreal as everything almost went black and white.

Watch the full film & find out just how quick this little beast is.

  • At 1st i thought: maybe the mini bike I made with a Mac-90 chainsaw engine that was scary fast. 2nd I thought: what a great car my 55 Merc was even after I rolled it on a country road into a cornfield. Farmer pulled it back on all fours &said: "if you can get it started before the sheriff gets here it would be good for all of us". We were gone before he got there. Then I thought no... It must be the sensation of being thrown 30 ft in the air and about a hundred feet down range when my Kawasaki 900 lost it's chain at about 103mph on an exit ramp. I clearly remember looking up at the Blue Sky and thinking: "at least my last vision is pretty." Imagine my surprise waking up in the emergency room and not someplace else I thought I deserved, LOL!!

    • Personally I'm thankful in quite surprised I'm still alive at 70 & still put 7k+ on my bike every year! As a passenger 2x in head-on collisions & a 3rd when some guy ran the light, destroying my Ford 500. I've been off a motorcycle 2x @ over 100mph...

  • On one memorable summer night 5 of us picked up E-Jags, ‘63-‘67 models. I chose the ‘67 roadster, put the top down, and at 1am on the I-5 north it was the first time I had driven a car at 100 mph....and it was glorious.

  • I was the passenger in a Mercedes SLS AMG as it flew down my road. Most fun I’ve had in a car.

  • Great article. Why are all my comments deleted on every post I comment on this website? Is there a secret handshake? Am I that irritating? Sorry if I’ve offended someone but I’d like to know?
