Default Left Turns

I was at the Charlote Airport FBO yesterday...thats the executive terminal. while waiting for my latest Repoe'd aircraft (this one brought to me) when I recognized Max Papis standing there with his wife and son Marco waiting for an aircraft ride....

I approached him and said hello, I recognized him from the last time we spoke (about 2 years ago) and had a pleasent conversation in Italian with him and his 4 year old son Marco. Portuguese with his Wife Tati and after all was done a mix of all two + Spanish and English..Pheeeeewww.......(Im gald he did not try French!!!!)

Anyhow, between talks about airplanes, Ducatis, rides, F1, Cart and Indy, I had to ask the NASCAR question specially knowing his driving skills and driver resume well. I was absolutelly dumbfounded by his answer and strong firm statements: "it is the hardest racing car I ever driven" "It is a Drivers leage" "By Far the best Drivers in the world race in Nascar and thats why you dont see any americans racing in europe."

I had to ask him if he was joking, and he looked at me and said..."I am dead serious" "All the cars I ever raced have had some sort of electronic aid one way or another" "Nascar is the purest form of racing series left and you better be good" "I have raced F1, LeMans and American lemans with Ferrari, Indy, Cart and again with the new Indy... many other races as well and this by far is the one I am strugling the most and it is just hard racing all the time"

I said.....how about the left turns? His reply."it looks easy, by it is by far the most technical race you could imagine"

I cannot begin to tell you how dissapointed I was to hear all this since I dont care about Nascar and was ready to continue asking him more now that my mind was racing full speed with more question when here comes Jimmy Johnson and wife (gorgeous) ready to take their plane ride to Atlanta but not before receiving a nice hand shake from Mad Max and definetelly a new outlook for Nascar
