Did a long drive to a mates last night (well, 40miles which is long for me!), part m-way, and I decided that in the Car Olympics, the C172 would excel at these sports:
sprinting - always the first to erupt away from the blocks
lunging (is that a sport?) - anywhere in between 40-80 it responds assertively
long distance - pulls like a train in fifth
Id forgotten just how peppy this thing is. It was nice to be reminded! Gold to the Clio then.
