Growing up racing go-karts, Patrick Bradley learned the thrill of speed at a young age. He also learned that speed comes in many forms, which may explain his love for all styles of racing. Weather it's MotoGP, WRC, V8 Supercars or LeMans... if it's on television, chances are he's trying to watch.

When he makes it big, Patrick is going to put a Datsun 510, 190E Cosworth, GMC Typhoon and a Celica All-Trac for kicks.

Generally speaking, the phrase “that’ll buff right out” comes with more than just a hint of sarcasm. However, there are the occasional situations when a scrape or a scuff on car paint looks scarier than it actually is, and will in fact… buff right out. Rewind to last weekend, and a KIA that got a […]
