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?

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
