Every now and then I find something on the internet that makes me happy. My latest internet addiction is Chris Harris on Cars. Chris Harris is a British automotive journalist who is the only person Ferrari has ever banned from testing its cars. Why did they ban him? He called them out for tuning their cars for journalist road/track tests. One car for the track, another for the drag strip, and another for the road all tuned to make them perfect for each test. Not exactly an honest practice for a car maker, even if it’s Ferrari. He found ways around their ban, mostly by driving privately owned Ferrari’s and now Ferrari loves him again.
Check out some of the videos he does for Drive Network. My favourite is the F40 vs F50 track test. I’ve never seen an F50 track tested and he rips the tires off of it.
And my favourite…
