See what happens when you buy cheap tyres.... absolutely no traction and they don't last 10 minutes!

Great vid, but I was already cheerful due to the nice sunny weather here in Southern England 8)
Kindest regards

And the wheels too! :shock:

I wish we had more public skid pans in the UK so we could try even some of those driving techniques.

While I admire the car control Ken Block can achieve (Amazing innit?) The guy I really admire is the guy riding the Segway :roll: Now that fellow has "Large attachments" as David Hobbs says.
