The Fastest Delivery Driver in the World

Gartrac would regularly take delivery of van loads of parts that needed to be modified. One particular day, Ford sent a new delivery driver in the works van. Shortly after the driver had arrived the police screeched into the yard and proceeded to question the young driver with regards to his driving. The delivery driver that day was a 17 year old Finn by the name of Ari Vatanen. The police had been trying to keep up with him for the last 10 miles with no success. The young Vatenen pleaded he did not speak English and the police let him off with a stern talking to.
