More Ferrari vs. M3

My wife got me a Ferrari Experience Groupon which allowed me to take 3 instructed laps in a Ferrari 360 Modena. The car was really cool and a thrill to drive. I think I focused more on the course then driving the car itself.

My wife took video of my 3 laps, then took a video of me in my car on the course. I timed the video and I think I'm seeing .5 seconds faster on a 30 second course.

If you don't plan to watch either videos, at least watch the second and turn up your sound. The Dinan mid-race/catback sounds mean.

Do they usually let you drive your own car on the course?

They let you pay $30 to drive for 3 laps.

How much do you pay for autocross? How much do you have to work the course? I don't think it was bad considering I was there anyway. The Ferrari deal is an amazing business idea. There's a lot to it that unless you've done it, you wouldn't realize the earnings potential.

Not bad at all IMO and sounds like fun...I'd pay $30 in a second. That does sound mean if nothing else
