When I grow up I want to be a racing car driver. I’m DEADLY serious.
Last month Hyundai invited a group of lifestyle media to Eastern Creek race track. Now, I know ALL about Eastern Creek. I’ve heard the boys talk about riding their motorcycles, cars ra ra ra and if I’m completely honest thought it was one of those ‘testosterone’ male things.
How wrong I was.
I have a lead foot. I already knew that but being able to embrace it? And then race it?
The day was FANTASTIC. Safety driving, skid pan driving (madness, pure madness- I snuck in a second go it was THAT much fun). Reverse parking sans hands !?! Skill tests, and then of course the speed tests.
At the end of the day I left with the winning prize of a sleek silver Hyundai i40 to drive for a month. (My lead foot performs particularly well under pressure apparently. )
Thank you for a wonderful day Hyundai and giving me the opportunity to let my inner-hoon. Out.
