Planking is defined by the as

The art of planking is to lay horizontally across any object or the ground with their arms by their sides, aiming to occur in daring situations or a brotherly display of core-strength.

But we think that planking is old news here at C&P. However, we have started an initiative that we believe is much more up our street. Ladies and Gentlemen, we bring you ‘Flatting Out’.

To ‘flat out’ is to become so bowled over by a car’s looks, abilities, noise or general awesomeness that nothing short of passing out next to it can convey your feelings for said automobile. It’s happened to us on a number of occasions recently with cars like the Lamborghini Aventador (above) …

… the utterly gobsmacking Porsche 918 RSR

… to our very own Porsche 993 RS.

But it’s not just us that’s being affected by the symptoms of ‘Flatting Out’. We’re hearing that others are dropping to the floor in sheer awe at vehicular sensationalism all around the region. Therefore, we are putting a call out to the C&P massive to send through their own examples of being flatted out.

So grab your camera, take some shots and fire them over to We’ll be compiling all the flatting out examples we get into a gallery of awesomeness here and on our delightful facebook page and are putting together some swag for the best we receive.
