The truth is simple. If you want to drive a Super Touring car quickly, there are just three steps. First, get in the car. Second, start it up. Third, drive it as fast as you can. Easy.
Or maybe not. Perhaps we need to ask an expert. Let's try the man who drives a Super Tourer quicker than anyone else in the British Touring Car Championship, maybe even anyone else on this planet.
Switzerland's Alain Menu, winner of 12 of the 24 rounds of the 1997 Auto Trader-backed BTCC, crowned champion with six races still to go, voted by AUTOSPORT readers as National Racing Driver of the Year, and the kingpin in the Williams Touring Car Engineering squad of Renault Lagunas, you are now a driving instructor.
