However, when the stars are aligned in your favour, great things can happen. This is what lead to me being able to test the 2015 Galpin-Fisker Mustang Rocket on the track at Willow Springs – and in doing so, became the first journalist ever to be given track access with this vehicle. I was later informed, that I am only the third person ever to get to drive this car on the track – behind two employees from Galpin Auto Sport – so it was a real privilege.
I also drove the car on public roads, hence giving me an idea of what the Rocket will be like in regular traffic.
As a freelancer, I often have to source a story myself – rather than be assigned – and then offer it to publications, hoping someone would pick it up.
