Christ, is that with you too?” whoops one of the bikers we’ve been chatting to about the sunshine yellow Ferrari 458. “Yep,” I say, as a Ferrari F40 noisily announces its presence to the whole of Aberfoyle. Big grins all round.
“No way, you’re taking an F40 up on the Duke’s Pass?” my leather-clad pal continues, incredulity and envy spreading in equal amounts across his face.
“Well, it’s not so much the car, as the bloke driving it.”
“Why, who’s that then, someone famous?”
“Yeh, Dario Franchitti.”
