Could you keep up with a VW van?

Recommended Posts

Ok, just for fun, you are at the "Ring" in your Isf--Rcf--Gsf and you follow this van onto the track, now I know what would be going through my mind but how long do you think you could hang onto the van, or do you think you could pass it...…………...hypothetical, I know...………..

Wow. 

I doubt I could 10 minutes playing on an XBox (with any type of car selected) !

Surely someone with your ability in a near 500bhp car could keep up with a van?????

With my lack of skill, no I don't think I could get near 10 mins in whatever car you gave me

Some of those vans are fast! 

I was once overtaken by a Ford van whilst driving a 5 litre TVR.  😳

I wonder if there’s a ring record for a RR?

I have often wondered why Formula 1 teams don't fit Ford Transit engines into their cars they seem to be able to do 100 mph while fully loaded for 8 hours a day every day.

Yes.  I would be well past it as already completed real laps in much faster times than the New Quay Taxi 🙂

What eh what..... Matt black grill? What a great idea!

There's a lot to be said for skill, I've seen racers on 125s beat road riders on fireblades round a track.....

Important to be humble, it's a long way down off a high horse :D

He is timing Bridge to Gantry which is banned nowadays.

But...  In any F car you would easily be past the van before you even got to the Bilstein Bridge that he commences his timer at.

True Story 🙂

The ISF has 4 doors which is better for the 2am drunks back from the clubs..... double time £££. My shift starts in two hours.

The ISF is a much safer car for carrying taxi customers compared to the RCF .. Here's me on the way to the 24hr McDonalds in Slough, caught out by a tight corner.. ....

I would mind that paint protection you've got fitted there :)
