Jaguar Bite

Yesterday I was at the Bahrain International Circuit test driving the hot-sexy new Jaguar XKR. How can you not fall in love with it? It's, well, gorgeous.

The day was freezing cold out in the desert, but the day turned out to be a lot of fun.

I've never raced down the track before, but I've been taken around it a couple of times – once in a Ferrari 355 GT. But this time was different, I was behind the wheel. The XKR is a beautiful fast car. Comfortable, easy to handle and the more time I spent in it, the more I wanted to get more out of it.

By the fourth and final round, the instructor next to me was urging me to 'break now' and 'slow it a bit'! I was hittin 250! It's my new 35K Dinar dream!

My birthday is coming up in a few weeks. Need I say more?! Anyone? Hello?!

Must have been a BLAST driving at the BIC. I did the HUMMER course a while back. That was a blast.
You look like you are doing your best 007 imitation getting out of the car Ali! My name is Al Saeed, Ali Al Saeed.
