Welcome on board with Joe Ghanem while he dishes out a lesson in controlled, committed and feisty overtaking drizzled with some stunning speed.

Both Joe and his team mate Tani Hanna competed in the European Maserati Trofeo series in Valencia, Spain this past weekend.

Considering it was their first time behind the wheel of the raucious monster of a  Maserati MC Trofeo race car, we think it’s fair to say he was properly on form.

Congratulations Sir… we bow down to you.
