I have another bad case of writers block, fuelled partially, by a bit too much rose – not excessive but maybe a tad more than would be deemed suitable for a Sunday evening.
For inspiration I scanned through various social media accounts and came across Paul Walker’s charity ‘Reach Out Worldwide’ and their countdown to Fast & Furious 7 hitting cinemas next year. Since PW died, I have noticed fellow petrolheads have paid tribute to the car star through one of the lines from the first movie ‘Dude, I almost had you’, stickered across the rear of their car.
That got me thinking about other cool quotes on speed and here are some of my favourites:
“When in doubt, flat out” – Colin McRae
“It is useless to put on your brakes when you are upside down” – Paul Newman
“Racing is life, anything before or after is just waiting” – Steve McQueen
“You should never feel comfortable, there is something wrong if you are” – Damon Hill
“The more precisely I drive, the more I enjoy myself” – Michael Schumacher
“In motorsport we work in the grey areas a lot, you are trying to find the holes in the rule book” – Danica Patrick
“What’s behind you doesn’t matter” -Enzo Ferrari
“Speed has never killed – suddenly becoming stationary, that’s what gets you” – Jeremy Clarkson
“Winning is everything, the only ones who remember when you came second are your wife or your dog” – Damon Hill
And this one from Bill Nighy “I speed up past mirrors” -I can relate a lot to that one.
