It doesn’t take you long to figure out that the outright fastest person you know is rarely the best driver you know. Usually, you find this out when you get a call about how they crashed into a tree.

This thought came to mind when we got to see the excellent driving of Team O’Neil Rally School’s Wyatt Knox demonstrating what left-foot braking is and why you should know how to do it:


Reader move-over-peasant-I-have-an-M5-in-the-shop pointed out that Wyatt’s excellent driving on video is good, but it’s not the greatest test of driving skill:

This has me wondering if there could be some kind of kid-juggling, phone call making version of Formula 1 run in stained minivans. It could be a spec series for something like the Renault Espace F1 but with more dog hair. But I don’t know. What do you think the ultimate driving test would look like?
