Way up north in Canada, this is beach weather—or so we’ve heard.
Our passports were flagged back in ’98, and we’d rather not say why we’re not allowed back across the border.
Which is a shame, because if there is one thing worth going topside for (aside from the free healthcare and budget pharmaceuticals), it is their racing.
Which is, as you’ll see in the video below, downright awesome.
What you’re looking at is in-car footage from the cockpit of the number 63 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 458, driven by Alessandro Balzan during warm-up laps of the Mobil 1 Sports Car Grand Prix held earlier this month at the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park near Toronto.
This car, which competes in the GT-Daytona Class, has no driver aids—no traction control, no ABS, nada.
Just the way God and Enzo intended.
Those other cars you see on the track have all sorts of electronic wizardry keeping them shiny side up, this Ferrari just has a pilot with gigantic… skills.
And this is a perfect example of why we love sports car racing.
Even if it’s in Canada…
