Day Of Fun With VW Canada

After weeks of waiting the VW Freedriving Tour day came around. I felt like a teenage boy who finally got his full drivers permit and was getting schooled on the art of driving from one of the Top Gear guys.

It looks so fun to drive, I can’t wait!!! To make this day even more fun I get to have my very own driving instructor to teach me all the tricks of the road and how to handle these cars on the track. One of the instructors for the day is Jeff McKague, he’s been a professional race and performance driver …
