Would you like to experience the thrill of racing driving? The rough, head to head, metal-to-metal competition, brutal acceleration and frantic breaking, adrenaline rushes when a rival cuts you off or the sheer pleasure of being the first at the line? All that and more – whole day long? No need to train for Formula 1, no need to go up the ranks to get to NASCAR. Just come to Warsaw, Poland, rent a car and take to the streets on a sunny, warm day.

I just went through this last Monday. I think I’m getting older – or more civilized – because it really bothered me when everybody was speeding past me, making all kinds of crazy maneuvers. And the bad state of the streets – ruts and holes – added an off-road-ish beat to it. I think I prefer more orderly traffic, really.
