250 LM thug – During the 2017 Spa Classic, which I went to visit with some friends, we saw something quite “fun”. During the Trofeo Nastro Rosso (a race featuring a bunch of classics), the sunday final race was quite impressive. Each car was seriously going for it and looking for the prize.
This yellow Ferrari 250 LM, a regular at the Peter Auto events, was driving really hard on the mythical Spa-Francorchamps circuit. You could tell he was fighting for his position and for victory. At each passing, he was going full throttle. But sometimes racing is full of surprises, one tiny moment of inadvertency, and things can go sour with those classic monsters. And that’s just what happens, the driver kind of lost control during this treacherous chicane.
But what happened next is the real thing: he did a brilliantly-executed U-turn right at the end of the chicane, and instantly attacked the straight line. Baller. I thought it was such a bad-ass / thug life kind of moment, that I couldn’t help myself to make a quick video about it lol! This little stunt only made the driver lose 8 seconds on the race, and he was still on the podium at the end! The 250 LM thug life is upon us!
