Why Speed Matters

August 27, 2015


“If everything seems to be in control, you’re not going fast enough.” – Mario Andretti, champion racing car driver

I recently returned from a trip to Italy where the speed limit on the Autostrada (Italy’s main highway system) is 130 km/h, the equivalent of 80 miles an hour. After just a few harrowing miles I learned that driving faster is a matter of survival in Italy: if you don’t go fast, you risk being driven off the road by other drivers. I now understand why Italians created the Ferrari and Lamborghini: they have a serious need for speed!
