Press That Silver Button And The Weeks Problems Disapear

Well for me later afternoon after a challenging week at work i though i need some me time, so it was quick change into garage everything in sport + and press that silver button and the weeks trials and tribulations started to fade into the distance
45min later and a good few liters of V Power and the glorious sound of that V8 twin turbo and the mammoth effort from the past week has been worth it

Anyone else go for a little spirited drive out to clear the head on a Friday?

I'm doing it on Monday, as I'm on a half day and it's the first day off in just shy of 2 months of solid work. I don't have the sound of a V8 but I have a very loud dump valve and a boot load of induction noise which always puts a smile on the dial

Roll on Monday

I think you have more than earned that trip out for sure, yes no V8 needed if i had take the John Cooper Works out in sport mode the smiles per miles on the twisty bits would have been up there for sure, enjoy your monday afternoon fun

Ye im looking forward to the drive home, I think I might brim the tank in the celica gt4 and then fill it once more whilst I'm out just for good measure. Then I'm off to the garage for a few weeks to tinker with my cars before it starts all over again

I often take the long way home on a Monday morning, before the idiots get out of bed and clog the roads up.

Yeah I don't use it as an excuse to speed, just to go around corners faster than 3mph like everyone else
