lol, JC isn't even a racer, and I'm pretty sure you could easily get the F1 to 1000+ HP if you wanted to...

There was a Veyron at the Ring. He spun twice. On a track there are (some)faster cars. Veyron has 4wd. I've got some Ring/drift and track experience myself So maybe I'm a bit 'racing' biased. Sorry.

This one?

Looks like my brother is going to get to visit Europe before me. He's leaving tomorrow and going to tour Germany, Austria, Switzerland, etc. When I visit the Ring, you need to be my guide. Do you live in Germany or Holland?

David, I'm a Dutchman living in the Netherlands but about a 45 mins drive from the German border, but not in the 'Ring area'.

Any questions I try to answer if possible

I always get confused about the naming of your people and country; Dutch, Netherlands, Holland. Here's a question: Where can I rent a Carrera GT for my first run on the Ring?

Wow. I envy the guy but the wife/gf is just annoying.

Oh honey, what happened to the steering wheel.

(Edit) Just watched the second video. I would have to kill her.

She must look awesome to have to wake up listening to that every day.

the question is, was she really happy or just excited that she can now go to her girlfriends and say, my husband just bought a million-dollar car.

He was a freaking airfield...I'm sure ALL of you guys would mash the throttle in an empty space like that. Nothing to do with driving with precision, he's just letting loose and having fun. Some of you seem to be a little jealous.

Nothing about the way he drove to make me jealous. He sure as poop was on an airfield, and but he still almost ran off the road! Getting a feel for the car maybe, but doing donuts in a McLaren!? C'mon

...Should have just bought himself a Charger and saved himself a ton of money
