So like many people, you have the need for speed but possibly not the money for a supercar, which can all too easily tip the £100k mark. You may have the money, but are these powerful supercars really worth all the hassle of ownership? To begin with, there are the crippling running costs, which granted may not be such an issue if you are fortunate enough to fork out over 100k for a supercar. Another fact to consider is that you can’t drive the car to its maximum on any road in the UK, not only because it is illegal and it is important to obey the laws of the roads (obviously) but because none of our glorious roads are designed for such high speeds, the drivers we share our roads with also won’t be prepared for a supercar bearing down on them in their rear view mirror! Continuing on the topic of roads, we are sure you will not enjoy driving your super low supercar over the masses of speed bumps and potholes which characterise UK roads, wreaking havoc not only on your suspension, but your vertebrae too. There is also the unwanted attention of driving one of these cars, yes attention firstly sounds pretty appealing, especially if it is from members of the opposite sex… but this really only happens in films… It’s sad but its true; women will not hurl themselves at you if you drive a nice car. Attention will more than likely originate from a very different source – boring middle aged men, asking questions about the car you don’t know the answers too… All in all, that supercar you had your eye may not seem the best option now!
Fortunately however, there is a way of getting around this problem; the solution is a track day with a company like Everyman Racing.
