I'm not attributing this to Jeremy Clarkson, obviously. What I'm saying is that his words can easily inspire idiots!

You read what JC says, you see him go sideways in a huge track with no traffic whatsoever then you rush out to go and buy a GT86 and all of the sudden you think you are the 'drift king' doing stupid things in the middle of the traffic.

What I'm saying is simply this: don't mistake a traffic road for a huge abandoned aerodrome that someone else got only for himself while he talks lightly about cars for the real world.

Yes I know... been there, seen that!
