If you have a need for speed, then head on over to Queensway and suit up for some new thrills of drifting on ice-ice baby.
I was a little concerned about how well I would do driving on ice. I am a huge fan of go-karting, although I have only been once in my life, I get a real rush. Something takes over when I’m out there and I want to put the pedal to the medal. I have a real need for speed. When I had the opportunity to take on a new challenge by adding ice to the mix, I became quite ecstatic. Although I was also a little concerned. Would I be able to drive without crashing? Would I be have to be cautious the whole time and drive slow? Would I be spinning out every lap? This would all be an unpleasant experience for me if it was.
Hell No. I was flying!
Yes, I was a little cautious to begin with. Testing out the boundaries, driving slow, easing into corners. A few laps later I added a little more pressure to the accelerator. Few laps after that and I was buzzing, giving it as much as I could with each lap gaining more and more speed. As my husband put it my eyes were ‘lit with excitement’. I worked out how to steer without spinning out every corner. Unlike some who would let the ego take over a little too much. I could give it a lot and take on the corners with ease most of the time. There were a couple of spin outs, but that’s all part of the thrill of testing your limits.
Writing about this now is giving me a rush. I am wanting to book in for another spin.
