I don't think I'd be panicking either lol. I would totally trust that Tiff knew what he was doing knowing his capabilities are vast

Tiff Needell is one awesome dude, man he drove the crap out of that M3 didnt he? Very Badass Driving, and the sound was
It was funny looking at the passengers face lol, at the end of the ride i think he was happy he made it out alive
If I got a ride with him in an M3, I would have the biggest smile on my face and it wouldnt go away for weeks

Yes, he's incredible!

As a former F1 and Le Mans driver, he should be incredible.

Its funny you're quite right. When I worked at a BMW dealership in England (before my Canadian adventure), we ran a customer appreciation day at Goodwood and all vehicles in the model line up were there to drive, from an R56 Mini Cooper S to an M6.......

Tiff was running E60 M5 hot lap passenger rides (usually with 4 up) for the entire day. It was so hard on the car that 2 were used one before and one after lunch!!!!

For anyone who has driven at Goodwood, it has kind of a wide, slightly dogleg, straight (like a larger scale version of the kinked straight at the Mosport DDT track, when heading Clockwise) on which a quick car (M6) can see the healthy side of 145/146 mph, but Tiff in the M5 would just carry the speed into the following apex and we'd be looking out of the side windows at 135 mph!!

Garage List
Sorry late to the party on this one..... I'm the boring bastard sitting in the passenger seat, and I have to admit when I saw the video back that I thought the same thing!

I was calm because I had seen Tiff drifting the M3 all day and knew there wasn't a hope in hell of him crashing, I was too engrossed in the drive to worry about screaming like a little girl. It was great fun but also a little of a let down after having driven the Scuderia a few minutes before..... I think I was still shell shocked at how amazing that was! Ferrari was stunning even compared to the Lambo LP670 SV I drove the week before..... main difference is that the Scud instructor was happy for all of the revs to be used while the guy in the Lambo (also the owner of the car!) didn't allow more than about 6000rpm before asking for a gearchange.

Apologies for being a boring twat I'll try weeping with joy or pissing my pants next time
E93 ///M3 M-DCT

Testing soon: Lambo LP670 SV and Ferrari 430 Scuderia
