Driving a racing car involves great deal of physical fitness and training and the daredevil actress was up for the challenge. Talking to a popular daily about this latest achievement, an elated Panag said, “I feel privileged to know that I am amongst very few people in the world to drive this car, on what is only its second outing. I felt like I was driving the future.”
