At a rally race in France, this team suffered a setback when their throttle cable snapped, leaving the car stranded on the side of the road. In the most sensible move imaginable, the driver climbed out, crawled onto the engine bay, and operated the throttle with one hand while holding the hood down with his other so his navigator could steer them to the next checkpoint.
That’s what I like about Europe. In America there are all these things about safety. Warning signs, speed limits, Don’t Do This, Smoking Is Bad For You, Chainsaws Should Not Be Used on Cats, blah blah blah. Europe, man — that’s some laissez faire shit. The whole continent is like a haunted abandoned warehouse.
