That's true. Another rider and I rode this same route. We were going slightly quicker through the corners but tried not to exceed the speed limit in the straights and more importantly ruin the road for locals or get an award. When I saw this video for the first time, my thought was that our ride video would have us about a minute ahead, but in reality, we were only 15 seconds ahead. So very close and very fast for a little car. The video is deceptive. Had they used a GoPro or Contour with a fisheye lens, it would have turned out to be much more exciting.
I've looked at the GoPro and thought about it. The camera I had before is broken so I need something. I just don't get out that much any more. I've done those roads on a motorcycle too years ago. It's great fun riding up there. In this video my buddy was holding me up and you can see me looking around him trying to give him a big hint. He finally pulls in to the turn out so that I can get by safely and later he thanked me for not putting a move on him. We were in a group of about 30 Minis and I ditched them on this road as I was having such a good time.
