Agreed. That wasn't really pushing it, IMHO. They looked like they were having fun though.
Have you guys ever driven fast on real roads? With cliffs? It's a little different than driving around cones in parking lots. Knowing how to drive within a margin is important.

I'd like to drive those roads but at a more relaxed pace.

Yes, I do. If he's got time to keep one hand on the shift knob, then he's not driving that fast.

Seriously???????? This guy is a SKILLED driver. Has many other videos posted while on track. The type of driving in video I posted requires a lot of shifting and control. Who knows if that road was even familiar to them which makes it more unpredictable. Unless you guys are Mario Andretti, I think you are being super critical....

I like how this thread has become a pissing contest, when the only reasonable response is the driver is an entitled douche putting *innocent* people in danger.

I really wish I owned this car back when only older enthusiasts could afford it, instead of all you boy racers.

Sorry, but very irresponsible driving

I don't see a j/k, so I'm serious.

Yes, I used to do it pretty regularly when I lived in Denver. I did stay in my own lane though. I rarely do the autoX thing as I like to go faster.

I don't see much skill, just sloppy driving waiting for an accident. Bombing around at ~50 mph with one hand on the wheel is not what I'd consider consider skilled, just sloppy and disrespectful of the car and the road.

I'm all for spirited driving, but as a driver, you should always apply proper attention and behaviors when you're behind the wheel.
