I don't even find driving on the mountain back roads very fun anymore. ISF's and C63's try to egg me on all the time and I just cruise at a comfortable pace thinking about that next track day why they make themselves look like an idiot in traffic.
Very good point! I had the same perspective after HPDE. I had little desire on the streets after that experience.
