Epic Rally Fail (E.R.F.)

SMDH!  Who has 2 thumbs and thought they were Ken Block, Tanner Foust, or Scott Speed?  This guy right here.

First of all keep it on a track, closed race course or something that will not endanger the lives of innocent folks and wildlife.

Secondly, don’t push it to the limit.  There is no trophy or prize money at the end of that backroad.  And no honorable mention for coming in dead.

Lastly, know your limits and the limits and characteristics of the vehicle.  AWD does not mean it will not slide, understeer, or spin out of control.  The R&D put into designing the vehicle does not guarantee that you will instantaneously be a Formula 1 driver,  Formula Drift podium finisher, or the next Redbull Global Rally Cross  champion.

Hone and craft your driving skills before you challenge the road and for God’s sake be careful.

Ok, that was my PSA for 2017.  Now onto the videos.

 

Throwing this one in because idiot driver.  Skills but insane!

Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

Another car on my list of must haves to drive and own.  The 507hp Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.  The price of admission is only $80k, a small price to pay for a slice of Italian goodness.  Take an in-depth look with me here on the Perks Garage YouTube channel.

Driving lesson full of Octane! 

I had heard about this prior to purchasing my 2016 Focus ST but wasn’t sure if this was still a thing.  Not that it was a determining factor when purchasing, but assumed it would be a nice cherry on top.  One day I was checking the mail and I noticed a letter from none other than Ford’s Octane Academy!  I calmed myself prior to opening it similar to receiving a letter from a college I applied to.  Mr Perkins, you have officially been selected by Ford to participate in the ST Octane Academy…Awwwwww Yeeeeeaaaah!  

 The “Academy” is offered to buyers of their perfomance line of vehicles.  Similar programs are offered by Ford for the Focus RS, GT350 and the Raptor. 

I now need to book a flight to Utah for a “Octane” filled weekend of Hooning with Ford’s professional driving instructors and other like minded ST owners.  Once there they will teach us how to drive the ST on a race track.  Show us how to autocross, teach us some performance driving methods, basically show us how to push the limits of the cars…safely.  There will also be a ride along with one of the instructors, a lead and follow session and then solo track time in Ford’s middle brother of their hot hatch family.  To round out the academy event, there will be go-karting to see who is king/queen of the go-kart track. 

I have done other drive events,  but I am especially looking forward to being part of this experience and learning the full potential of a car I actually own.  Utah here I come! 

 I’ll keep you posted on when I do this, as well as provide some nice videos.

What dreams are made of…well at least mine are!

What’s funny is that I have this exact same dream every night that I’m driving through the streets of Japan in a fully built GTR R35 with a Liberty Walk body kit, and never get tired of it 😆.  But in reality it only makes me rethink my career path and realize that I need to make A LOT more money to make this dream a reality.

GoFundMe account coming soon…

Joking, not joking!
