I’m just the right age to have a nostalgic fondness for Lamborghinis. When I was a kid I had the Countach / Alpine Hi-Fi poster up in my room…it was the Farah Fawcett poster of my generation. When I got a little older I looked at Lambos are more of a show-off machine than sports car. They don’t have the pure-bred racing heritage of Ferrari. But even though I’m an elitist, I always wanted to drive one.
Thanks to the friendly folks at Toronto Motorsports Park and the Exotic Car Experience, I got to drive Uli Bieri’s droptop Lamborghini Gallardo around the road course. What a blast!
Sure, it wasn’t the 1984 Lamborghini Countach LP500 S from my childhood, that didn’t seem to bother Daniel at all.
Big thanks to Uli, Cindy Dov and all the staff at TMP for another great father son moment that we will never forget!
