I have two defining moments in my lifetime Saab experience.
The first of these is my first Saab experience – a rather dangerous and irresponsible 200 km/h ride in a 1986 Saab 9000 Turbo on the road into Philip Island (with a 3-series on our tail). The second was my first experience on the track at Baskerville Raceway here in Tasmania.
The first sold me on getting a Saab one day, and the second has me thinking of joining a second car club that participates in some form of lighthearted motorsport.
Which is why every country should have one, if not both, of these:
And a Nurburgring
It looks like this lucky Saab owner’s had the pleasure of whipping his 9000 around ‘The Ring’. I can only hope I get the same opportunity some time. Just a couple of laps around our local track is enough to get the addiction started. I can’t imagine what a session at the Nurburgring might do.
Anybody out there driven it? Or the Autobahn?
Is it, as I suspect, a must-do experience if and when I finally make it over there?
