When Stig appeared, it was from a far pit garage without warning. There was the faint odour of pine and wild rosemary as he stretched out a gloved hand for the keys. He took the GTO and shook it, hard, with some of the longest, loudest, most freakish drifts I've ever seen, ESP off, natch. With the V12 screaming at the limiter, the tyres howling, you could see his furious hands working the wheel in perfect synchronisation with his right foot. He didn't say a thing afterward, merely hopped out and strode off in the direction of Poggiforzoli. But as you can tell from the photos, he liked it. A lot. (For further proof, watch our hand-held vids.)
