After a slow start the 2010 World Cup in South Africa has been full of thrills and spills. Portugal netted seven against North Korea and both Brazil and Spain showed their class against the Ivory Coast and Honduras respectively, and the tournament is now moving through the gears. As the group stage of the tournament nears its conclusion and the straight knockout format is due to kick in, expect to see more thrills as there are no second chances. Only then will the battle to be crowned World Cup winners really hot up, with the experience of the final almost unrivalled.
The adrenaline and sense of anticipation that surrounds the World Cup final is something to behold. The thrills that is provides for the players involved, the supporters in the stadium and football fans around the world watching at home will be remembered for a very long time, especially if it’s a classic in the vein of England v West Germany at Wembley in 1966. That is one of those special occasions that go down in history, but something completely different that will give you an adrenaline rush can be enjoyed everyday.
The World Cup final is something that you have to wait a long time for, four years in fact, but you’ll only have to wait until work finishes to drive your Mazda MX-5, although that’s long enough! Getting behind the wheel is a thrilling experience in a car that offers unadulterated driving pleasure. From the feeling of putting your foot to the floor to that of having the roof down and the wind in your hair, driving the MX-5 will give you a buzz from start to finish. That’s something you can’t say about most football matches, apart from a select few.
Hopefully we’ll be graced with a classic or two in the 2010 World Cup that will come close to meeting the needs of thrill seekers around the world. Condor Hang Gliding in the Andes, somersaulting from the nose of a 40 ton whale and racing your friends in a buffalo stampede just aren’t exciting enough. Watching the 2010 World Cup final might just be the only thing that you delay the thrill of getting behind the wheel of a Mazda MX-5 for!
