My Uncle, The Speed Racer

Yesterday my parents and I went with my uncle to watch him drive a McClaren mp4-12c around a track at Qualcomm stadium. It's a crazy fast car. He had the choice of two models of a Ferrari, a Lamborghini and the McClaren. Obviously he chose the McClaren which was the fastest and the coolest.

This is the speedster

We bought him a gift certificate for his birthday the week before. My uncle drove around the track 3 times. I got some pretty good pictures of him while driving, but the video we took doesn't show how fast he was going. He says that the moment that you hit the gas, you are plastered to the seat and you have very little time between the straights and the curves to react.

He had such a great time that it made me really want to try it. He told me that when I am allowed to drive he will buy me a ticket so that I can have that amazing feeling of speeding down a track. I can't wait.

This is the exact car he drove.

We did this with Gotham Dream Cars
