TEST MY RIDE

Challenge a Formula 1 driver with your own car!

Which one is faster? A Formula 1 racing star or a car owner who has tuned his street car to maximum performance? In television format Test My Ride, car enthusiasts have an opportunity to fulfil a dream of their lifetime: Drive a lap on a motor track in a car of their own against a Formula 1 driver. 

At the end of each episode, the car is given points for driveability and appearance, and points are also given to the owner on the basis of driving skills and attitude. At the end of the season, the test driver selects his favourite, the Tuner of the Year!
