The Flying Dutchman

I once spent a fortnight on a Dutch frigate high inside the arctic circle in a hurricane. During this terrifying experience I discovered that all Dutchmen are completely mad; charming but mad! They seemed to find the 60ft waves and the violent motion of the ship extremely entertaining and just laughed a lot. This video of an MX5 begins very quietly, rather like my voyage on the frigate, and gradually descends into a hurricane of speed! Stick with it….

To quote the driver, “It is not the fastest car money can buy, but it is certainly the one with the best “fun for money” value. The 160 bhp feels like 200+ in the MX5, with which it is possible to make some drifts.”
