Second Life you can visit Motorati Island and race on the many virtual
race tracks or if you own the NASCAR Play Station game you can get the
feel of speed. I love to race these games...but I had a need for speed
that virtual reality could no longer satisfy!
Donning my helmet, I slipped in through the window, got strapped into the five-point harness, steeled all my courage and took the ride of my life on a twisting turning road course with John Heinricy at top speeds of 110 MPH in the race ready performance Hot Rod Pontiac Solstice with an LS7 crate engine.
Jokingly he turned to me before we took off and asked , " You not one of those who is going loose your cookies on me are you?" No - Way! I had a blast, what a rush, my adrenaline is still pumping and this was last Tuesday! Woo Hoo!
our "practice" run of three laps around the track I had a totally new
appreciation of the skill, concentration and endurance required to be a
race car driver.
Thank you John for the ride of my life! ( I even got his autograph !)
Now that John showed me around the course ..or better the blur I saw as we whizzed by, it was my turn to drive the track.
I hopped into the Pontiac Solstice
GXP Club Sport and took off down the track..reaching top speeds that
felt like 5 MPH after my run with John! I think maybe I topped out at
maybe 50 MPH and tried to push it as much as I could and stay in
control. Amateur performance for sure , but so much fun to try!
