    • You take the racing line when walking or pushing the trolley when shopping..
    • You get up at crazy times in the morning just to watch a race live or even free practice..
    • You count down the days until the first practice session in Australia..
    • Every time you stop at traffic lights, you imagine it to be the start of a race and you watch the light, eagerly ready to floor the throttle..

    Can you come up with any more? :) (P.S - please delete or move this thread if its been created before)

    • you take the racing line while walking as well as upshifting and downshifting
    • you are a passenger in the car and take a packet of wipes and use it as a steering wheel
    • you have an F1 car sound as a ringtone

    Many moons ago, uh? :D

    About the driving...yeah, definitely guilty. I'd never violate the traffic code, tho. Taking a racing line around corners etc. is fine as long as I'm not putting anyone in danger and obey the speed limit.


    Just saw this. I'm guilty as hell.

    I had this some years ago, but those around me always wondered what the terrible noise was, so I changed it. :D

    When it is slippery with snow outside I take the racing line in corners when running. I think it works great.:thumbsup:

    You're using the handles for the windscreen wipers and turnsignals in your car as shiftpadles :D

    Everytime I shift up there's that damn fluid on my windscreen :p

    This seems to be an appropriate timing to chime in with that old saying:
    To finish first, you have to finish first :p
