This Will Make You Nervous
If you’re looking for a video that will make you extremely anxious, then the one included below is it. In it, a 14-year-old kid takes a Ford GT for a joyride around a racetrack at the Monticello Motor Club. The video was put together by the motor club and is designed to promote the club’s Teen Race Camp, which teaches teens (ages 14 to 19) how to drive a car safely on a racetrack.
The video is an effective promotional tool. Few would feel comfortable putting a 14-year-old kid behind the wheel of a high-dollar supercar like the Ford GT. Even fewer would feel comfortable doing so when the track is completely covered with snow.
To be fair to the kid driving, he does an excellent job. He’s obviously learned car control well. Not many people his age— or honestly much, much older—could successfully pilot the car around the snow-covered track with as much style and control. We bet he had a great time while the Monticello Motor Club filmed the video.
In all likelihood, he’s the son or relative of the owner of the car. He honestly, looks a little nervous in the video, but then again, we’d be sweating, too, if we were in his place. Our hats come off to him, and to Monticello Motor Club. Any initiative to get more young people in cars learning proper driving skills is welcomed.
