Twice this summer Daniel’s Subaru WRX competed against Chris’ Mazda MX-5 at the ‘King of the Hill‘ competition at Sunset Speedway. Both times the Bugeye came out on top. How was this possible?
There’s just no way that 20-year old Daniel is a better driver than Chris with more than 20 years of experience driving! While searching for answers, Chris stumbled upon these MotorWeek reviews from 20 years ago. The difference was the car not the driver.
