Racer is an extremely different breed of human (homo erectus to be precise) he was just born gifted, while he was being conceived he already had that Ross Bentley's books memorized.. ,mans' just talented

The know facts about Racer.....

1) his origins are known somewhat, he surfaced out of a previously unknown Russian chemical lab at the end of the Cold War, he could have been an experiment success, or did something go wrong?

2) He hides in Canada because the woman in the US are to fat

3) he is so tall he barely fits in a car, and helmet's are custom made for his head luckily there is no weight, just a chemical gas that allows the few cells living to exchange electric signals, gas is thought to be neon, but who know what happened in that chemical plant!

4) newbies and students learn from instructors, instructors and races learn from guru's, which all learn from Racer, Racer learned from Cole Trickle himself

5)he kinda looks like Ricky Bobby, but handicapped

6) he holds the lap record at Mosport in his Mothers Mazda, but its an unofficial lap time, as he is so fast that the timing gear always fails after his first lap.

7) his weak point is beer and vodka, very little needs to be drank for such a large man, make sure your wearing a belt around him when the booze hits him, luckily he is said to be faster off the track then on.

8) He actually wrote the secrets as speed books as a joke and Ross Bently found them on the floor in the washroom beside Racer who was passed out with his pants around his ankles again at Sebring and took them as gospel because Racer wrote them and had them printed to spread the word and create the Racer`s bible.

9) if you see dirt under his nails its not from working on a car, he more then likely feel over, Racer is above having to wrench, he just drives

10) Racer is Racer and will always be

Yes, I know what I am talking about. I actually paid attention to what I was reading, and have a fundamental understanding of driving technique. One doesn't need seat time to know how to drive. How many NHL coaches won the Stanley Cup as players?

As for the rest of you, smart asses, your pathetic comments come from your inadequacies, inferiority complex and a burning desire to add your worthless two cents on a subject you know nothing about.
I'll have you know that I sold my E30 and took over my mom's Mazda. It's a much better track car, and I am certain that I will drive circles around your fancy beeeeemers in it. Front wheel drive provides much better handling and an auto shifts faster and never over-revs.

LOL this is some of the better trolling I've seen recently. Bravo.

FYI your metaphor for comparing being a good driver from reading a book and having no seat time to being an NHL coach and never having won a cup is way off because the coaches all still played in the NHL... that's the equivalent to seat time. What you're saying is that because I really pay attention to the game when I sit on my couch watching hockey, never actually having played hockey, I can coach an NHL team.

Again. Bravo.

Just expressing my opinion on a public forum. Some of you need to pick up a few books and learn how to drive.

Racer turned down a ride with Marussia's formula 1 team to avoid separation anxiety from his mother.

lmfao, seriously? pick up a book and learn how to drive? I can understand going over technique's and what not, but just because you've been reading the kama sutra doesn't mean your gonna be clapping backshots like a pro

Well, I see your point, but do not agree with you. To argue about it on the internet is pointless, but I am certain that I can drive circles around you.
