Keep it Steady
One of the great things about Lime Rock is just driving the roads to get to the track. So I could not do that in a run of the mill Focus or Dodge Caliber rental. I needed something a bit special. And something that could haul my photography gear. And the people at Hertz obliged with an FX35. Never driven one of these before but it hussles along quite well on the country back roads. It feels smaller than it is. And with the windows down you get a great rumbly exhaust sounds. It is no replacement for my Porsches on these roads, but it is making the commute from B&B to the track better. I just have to keep it steady after watching racing all day and not speed.
