I had a stint in Jacky Ickx's 1984 Dakar Porsche at the Festival of Speed.

Never try to live high moments of your life with a camera in your hand. I drove Jacky Ickx's Dakar Porsche at the Festival of Speed on Friday, but, as the video proves, I had no chance of capturing the action with a hand-held compact camera, but you can hear some sounds at least. Umm, one more thing - all the swearing has has been cut out, because I had some deep thoughts on camera makers, battery life and mobile phone memory capacities that were'n suited for the public. I can only bring up one feeble excuse: 24 hours earlier I wouldn't have thought I'd ever sit in the driver's seat of this car, let alone gun it up the hill.

We thought the Cascada was the cabriolet version of the new Astra. We were wrong. The nagging continued until the very last moment before my departure for the test drive, colleagues would incessantly bug me about the name.
