THE RACING DRIVER
The racing driver. Some main points:
International F.I.A.-Racing Driver Licence No. 596 for touring-cars.
Competitions on racetracks, also hill climbs and drift contests.
One special fascination: the seconds before the start of a hill climb. You are the loneliest man in the world. You against the mountain. You know: the smallest mistake will have consequences, loosing the race, destroying the car, worst case loosing ones health or even life. But you decided to do this. The red light goes out. And then it is completely up to you; it is just you, your car, the hill climb – nothing else.
The Castiron. The racing driver.
