Arrows AX3 hits the track
SOON-TO-BE IRL racer Johnny Herbert chauffeured media and guests around Silverstone in the three-seater Arrows AX3 before Jos Verstappen spent the weekend with it in his native Holland giving rides around the famous Zandvoort circuit.
"I've been doing speeds of up to 300kph today and the passengers have loved every minute of it," said Herbert. "I'm presuming it was screams of pleasure and not terror I was hearing!"
Verstappen then put the three-seater Formula 1 car through its paces in a sponsor day at Zandvoort, where he also gave some flying laps in a road car and demonstrated the single-seat Arrows he is campaigning in Formula 1 this year.
