Here in Old Blighty, everyone seems to have agreed to drive on the left side on the road; to transform simple intersections into roundabouts; and otherwise subvert all natural laws of driving by putting steering wheels and other driver controls on the right side of their cars.

My first reaction to riding in England – seated on the left where the steering wheel should be – but isn’t, was to close my eyes until we arrived at our destination,

That actually worked out quite well for me – for a while.

Now, having ridden in several cars – with eyes open, I feel it may be time to take the next step:  Driving.

Supercar Hire / Rio Prestige has a lovely spot in the Internets for a new driver like me.

They list the following:

Audi R8 R-Tronic and Magnetic Ride
Aston Martin DB9
Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Bentley Flying Spur
BMW M3 Convertible
Ferrari 430 Spider F1
Lamborghini Gallardo Coupe and Spyder
Nissan GTR Black Edition UK Edition
Porsche 911 997 Turbo

Since I’m just starting out, I called to reserve the Ferrari 430 Spider F1.

Maybe next week I’ll try the Lamborghini.
