I'll give you a rep point if you can name that road and where it's located.
Stelvio Pass in Italy

Yeah, a lot of forum members were very jealous of him. He even got to drive his new car back through the pass after he acquired it.

I would shit a brick if I had to drive a FWD car down Stelvio Pass. You understeer over those stone railguards and you'll fall down the side for weeks.

Scion team won the NASA Championship. Beat other RWD cars, very nice.

Probably converted it to RWD. The chassis itself is nice and compact, it's just the drivetrain that doesn't work in racing. No sensible racing team would use FWD for motorsports. You just can't maximize the car's performance with it.
