    So i spent the day at the Moto GP testing the other day and when testing was finished they said go take the ford for a spin round the track. I was like agh hell yeah. so heres the video pretty funny stuff. after stopping with figured it was a lap of around 5.22 seconds not bad compered to the MOTO GP bikes earlier clocking around 2.05 seconds. All i can say was it was fun and probally something I will never get to do again.

    Well that's pretty awesome. Those bias ply tires were quite "communicative"

    That's awesome, had a smile on my face watching all the way through that. I got to walk parts of the circuit a month before the F1 race and I thought that was cool but getting to drive it in your custom is just plain RAD.......even funnier listening to your English commentary.....you're almost as excited as Murray Walker in parts! Awesome.

    I just found this video and was gonna post it till I saw your hamb shirt! This is my new favorite youtube video. I dont think you guys set any speed records but it sure is bad ass to have 49 shoebox screw around on a multi million dollar race track. HAHA

    Very cool Jay! Not only the first custom around the track, but driven by a Brit as well!

    Her Maj would be proud.
