Toyota GT86 First Ride

Last Sat I won an amazing chance to get driven around a test track by pro driver Luke Kidsley in the GT86. It was spectacularly fun. I still get tingly (no, not that weird thing James May talks about behind his gentleman's sausage...).

Anyways, sharing is caring, so I've edited a video together of the experience with two on-board cameras and one external shot.

Be gentle, please... I don't have a Mac. I wish I do. Instead, I had to contend with a rubbish laptop and very little time.

Enjoy!

I was pleasantly surprised at how the engine sounds. Didn't know what to expect when I got in it

Great video! Thanks for the upload. I'm envious of your chance for a ride it one! It looked like a blast to drive. It makes me want to take up drifting! (almost)

In this the car just looks so smooth threw transitions between drifts, in the Tsukuba vid I saw earlier, it look rough of course he wasnt trying to drift though. As for everyday changing lanes at speed looks smooth as well.

ive been waiting for a good high quality sound of what the car sounds like pushing it, couldnt really get that out of the other videos IMO. Definitely enjoyed listening to the car, got so distracted didnt even care for what the guy was saying.. seemed kind of full of himself.
