After that little incident, we pause, and BJ finally gets into the driver's seat and shows me what Fedor is capable of. Two things are immediately apparent. One, his body position is relaxed, confident, more aware of the vehicle's limitations (or lack of them). Two, he's looking hundreds of yards further away, head lifted, scanning endlessly for the upcoming terrain.
"At race pace, the stuff you're looking at within 100ft of the car has already happened," explains BJ. "If you really want to go fast, you have to look way, way ahead, and already have a plan."
