Not as funny as actual Mounties on Segways...but still good for a few chuckles.

Neither are as funny as the Kingston chief bawling on TV because his officers racially profile.

I'd rather have Rick Mercer, Segway accidents and all that than a blubbering chief and racist officers.

I liked his comment "There goes the new car smell.". :rolllaugh: He looked like he was having waaaay too much fun during the driving portion!

Well, reverse 180s are a lot of fun. Especially when you don't own the car.

I thought it was interesting that they took Rick out on the track in a "Charlie" car and not a track car.

It was a track car... they were just really behind on re-decaling them at the time.

yeah, PDU got a boatload of new cars while I was there (some to replace the older charlie cars and some were in addition to the current # of charlie cars), I had 9c4 on skills and track day, they just never bothered changing the decals on 'em.
