Driving the Paris-Dakar Porsche 953 at Goodwood
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.
