Latest CNNGo.com "Say What? with mrbrown" column: mrbrown turns Formula 1 driver for a day (in a Mini Cooper)
I realized that I missed Car Free Day on Wednesday. Some folks gave up their cars for that day and rode bicycles to work.
Me? I was driving a Mini Cooper S on the North-South Highway in Malaysia, woohoo-ing all the way.
Before you lash out in righteous indignation, I will have you know that I ride my bicycle almost every freaking day of the work week, so Car Free Day is pretty much every day for me.
So indulge my three days of driving a sports car.
Speaking of which, you can tell F1 is coming to town again. Yes, road closures and traffic jams have returned to Singapore for the next few days as we make way for those celebrity drivers of the Formula 1 world. Pffft.
Speedracer for a day
At least I can say I have driven on one of their race circuits (no, not Marina Bay), but Sepang in Malaysia.
Part of my drive in Malaysia was on the Sepang circuit and man, was that a blast.
You see, I was invited by MINI Singapore to try their MINI Driver Training in Sepang itself. (cont'd)
