Yesterday I finally got to use a gift of a driving experience at Mondello Park for my 60th birthday (22 months ago!) from my three daughters. I had never been to Mondello Park before, so this was a first for me. My daughters think that I am the slowest driver on the road, so I'm guessing that they had a lot of fun coming up with this as an idea for a present.
My instructor was fellow Wicklow man and up-and-coming race driver Max Hart. He immediately put me at ease and showed me how to take corners and brake at the last moment. I got to drive a Porsche for the first time - in fact I don't think I ever even sat in a Porsche before. It is a fantastic powerful car, and I loved driving it. Six laps around the 3.5 km track went by so quickly, but it was the most fun I had in a long time.
If you are looking for a great present - give it a go!
Thank you girls!
