What would your dream motorsports experience be like, if you could experience it ?
If funding and location weren't a limitation, what would your dream motorsport experience be like. If it'd involve
any greatly admired driver/s who are currently deceased, feel free to still mention it.

Reading pace-notes to legendary Toivonen at Oninphoja on Lancia S4When you're tired of rallying...you're tired of life

Are you ready for 10-20 years hard study---enough to drive you to drink---just to learn rudimentary Finnish? And learn musta kissa is? You better wish Toivonen could understand what do do when you are clawing the windows screaming "MADONNA! noi moriremo tutti! Gud bevare os!!!!!!!"
Cause that's what I'd be doing in your dream.
My dream: 2 seasons International level moto-cross back to back without serious knee injuries (both sides) and with a little bit better service barge/camper, like maybe LWB Transit with a 2,4 York diesel and with a solid partner.

To ride with Nuvolari on the Mille Miglia (In the dry!)
To ride with Fangio on the Carrera Panamericana
To ride with Eric Carlsson over the Col de Turini
To ride with Jacky Ickx on the Paris-Dakar
To ride with Richard Noble at Black Rock
Which probably explains why you find me in the history forum

The more you learn, the more you realise how little you know.

To ride with Jackie Stewart at the "Green Hell" in 1968 (when I was 14 and fearless) in a two seater.

so far only one person wishes to drive, all the others to ride with...
Something significant there.

I would love to drive the S4 myself but I guess Toivonen would be much faster...and that's what really matter for meWhen you're tired of rallying...you're tired of life

Well I have had the sheer pleasure of riding with Henri and brother Harri,albeit not on events.So my wish would be to ride with Hannu in the Quattro on the 1000 lakes ,and learn his car control,and if Hannu can't get back from Florida ,then Stig would be my second choose in the same car .

My dream would be track days for myself and a few of my mates at the dream tracks of Europe and the UK - all bikes fettled and transported in a nice styley truck, while we swanned from venue to venue in the dream car of choice, staying 5star all the way.... Err, I think I have written the word "dream" too many times, I must be dreaming
Bikes would be rider choice, I would have my 900ss (1999 injected model, with a few engine mods) as I love it and will never part with it, but also an MV Augusta f4 750 Special Parts - I have lusted after this bike since the first time I saw one, and still get a bit pouchy thinking about 'em. and the 750 is the ideal capacity IMO, I am not Micky D and dont really need to prove anything.
For a car I think I would probably have an Ascari A10, 'coz they're totally barking, but equally impractical.
*sigh* dare to dream... Doh, I said it again!

That's what i was referring to above "2 years without serious knee injuries"...
Glad to see somebody is thinking straight. Dream big, might just reach your goal.

I'd like a full day of driving the #2 Jaguar XJR-9 around Le Mans. And the next day, I'd be in the #12 McLaren MP4-4 at Spa. On my third and final day, I'd be in the #5 Penske PC-17 at Indianapolis. On yeah, my "traveling companions" for each test day would be Elle Macpherson at Le Mans, Beverly Johnson at Spa and Christie Brinkley at Indy.

If I had weeks to live then a passenger ride with Gilles Villeneuve - car or helicopter!
Back to reality I still feel chuffed to have had Justin Wilson as a track day driving instructor.
My dream holiday would be a road trip through France-Belgium-Nurburgring visiting road racing courses past and present.The world according to Taki Inoue: https://mobile.twitter.com/takiinoue/status/301406167249326080

Winning the 1991 Formula One season; driving for Benetton.
It would have wiped the smirk off or Senna's face and Schumacher would never have been signed for Benetton and a whole chain of events would have never have happened.
I would have also secured sponsorship from Texaco and driven in a black car, simply because black Texaco cars are cool looking.Horse! You have failed in your mission! We are lost with no sign of Sweetville. Do you have any final words before your summary execution?
