We trundle back to base. Somewhat surreally, this is a Huf Haus sitting proudly next to a half-kilometre-wide circle of tarmac deep in the heart of a Belgian wood. "It's pretty wild, isn't it? You ready to have a turn?" comes a voice over the on-board intercom. No. Actually what I'm ready to do is climb back in my nice, mellow Audi A6 and head back to Blighty. "Come on, pull yourself together," I tell myself, "It's only a Ford Fiesta."
But it isn't. It's a Rallycross car. Or to be more exact, it's Tanner Foust's Rallycross car. And, in three days' time, he'll need it to be 100 per cent not-broken so he can compete in the opening round of the European Rallycross Championship.
