Imagine wrestling with a vast two ton racing car with it’s LOOOONG bonnet/hood stretching way out ahead of you.
Fighting against the wind pressure pushing goggles into your face at 100mph.
The wind howling in your ears joined by the shriek of an open exhaust from the large powerful engine up front.
Round a bumpy, off-camber corner, perhaps on a mountain pass with a sheer cliff drop on the outside edge.
Sliding on the dusty uneven surface with your stiff unforgiving skinny tyres.
With zero concessions to safety, no airbag here – not even a seatbelt. OK, you have your gloves, goggles and perhaps a leather cap.
Those drivers were heroes, the lot of them, more so the non-winners who never got a mention in the history books.
Likewise there was no safety net with this Inktober drawing today, straight to ink with no pencil under-drawing and no chance to erase. However I wasn’t about to end up in pile of twisted burning wreckage.
I wasn’t overly happy with the result here so you’ve got two for the price of none today.
