    1327539540

    Mid-stage is no time to let your driver know his navigator has no damn clue what's going on.
    My helmet has just been crammed into the cross ribs of the roof of our Miata for the third time in less than a kilometer, driving a guttural "OOMPH" from my lungs mid-sentence at the same time. I regain ...
