Perhaps a Mini 850 would be quick enough for him >?:PLO

On the other hand probably wouldn't have the same crumple zones (tribute to Ron's personal engineering skills smiley)

Didn't Ron personally test the crumple zones at Suzuka one year while giving Gerhard Berger a demo of the F1? I'm sure I read it in a car magazine at the time >?:PLO

I also remember a story that Gerhard rolled Jean Todt's new Lancia Integrale at Fiorano some time in the mid 90s. No wonder they replaced him with Schumacher - keeping a job tip number one, don't crash the boss' car :P
