When he was sitting in the passenger seat of a modified Dacia and saw his older friend blindly storm the intersection, Ionut realized it was time to get his own driver’s license. He waited to turn the right age since, back then, he was still in high school. He did learn one thing from those aspiring racers he used to hang out with: hold the wheel of the car you’re in.
