I like driving at the limit, I work as a vehicle dynamics engineer so I can get paid to do it daily! My main work function is tyre testing, though I am deeply involved with vehicle ride, steering and handling(including ESP) tuning. It's not unusual to spend 8 hours a day, for weeks on end, driving at the limit.
My colleagues are great, the pay is good, the experience is fantastic...IF you like driving. I plan to die a happy man.
I've competed in endurance races at the Nurburgring with some friends, we had a ball. I've been an instructor at track days, where I love passing on my enthusiasm for driving. I believe many people have the skills to be very good drivers.
I ride a dirt bike at the weekend and challenge/scare myself a lot doing it. I've also taken up bmx riding to improve my bike handling skills, but I'm still only average!
