It has been a while since my last post so I wanted to make this one extra special.
Well, AJAC’s annual TestFest event is underway in Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario and I’m here once again to put a number of Modern Sports Cars through their paces on the airport runway test track.
My assignments today included test driving the Buick Regal GS, Dodge Charger SRT8, Kia Optima SX, VW Jetta GLI, Mercedes-Benz -Class coupe, Honda Civic Si coupe and Hyundai Veloster. The 2012 Porsche Cayman R was purely for my own indulgence.
Could this be Canada’s 2012 car of the year? I dunno, but I shot this photo at about 4:30 on Tuesday, October 25th in Canada. And, despite the rain (perhaps because of it) I got to experience the raw, visceral power of this stunning specimen for a half-dozen end-of-day, wet laps.
T’was a first drive for me actually. Better when wet? Not likely, but capable nonetheless. Three thumbs up!
