    Pro-racers are the shit. Also, there's more rubbing going on in that first lap of the first video than in a greek bath-house. Driving at those speeds while literally touching two other cars making corners like that takes a fucking nut.

    In the same way Frank Lloyd Wright - who, if to save his life, couldn't design a roof which wouldn't leak - was to architecture, this is what Colin Chapman was to automotive engineering.
