Toni Elias has fun on four wheels

Spanish 250 rider Toni Elías participated in a four-wheeled festival at the circuit of Jarama, which included the two-seater Minardi Formula 1 car driven by Matteo Bobbi, a Seat Supercopa León, a Ferrari Modena 360 and the new Seat Toledo from the Spanish GT Championship.

Elías tried out most of the vehicles, but was particularly impressed with the Minardi. ´I really enjoyed this experience for lots of reasons but I obviously love anything to do with speed and engines. The Minardi surprised me with its power and speed, but the thing which really made my jaw drop was on the brakes. When I was expecting Matteo to brake he was still going up through the gears and when he did finally put his foot on the reaction was so quick and so strong´.

Elias was joined at the event by other motorcycle riders including Grand Prix pal Joan Olivé and enduro racers Joan Roma and Isidre Esteve.
