Its 10 years since I drove a Ferrari on a track day. It was a Ferrari 360 Spider in navy blue and it was very fast indeed (proper manual box too) but I didn't realise we were going so fast.


The instructor said we hit 150mph on a stretch that felt like 70 to me lol! He awarded me 97 points out of 100 and said I did so well because I listened to him. He said they get too many guys who turn up thinking they are driving gods because they do wheel spins in their saxo's back home and that they know better than the instructors. They basically end up with much lower scores as a result!


A few years back I also did a track day in an Aston Martin DB9 (flappy paddle box) and that was also very fast but also refined. On the same day, I was taken for a high speed passenger ride in a supercharged Ariel Atom with a pro racing driver at the wheel and nothing prepares you for the acceleration and g-force of the thing. It is an ironing board with wheels, an engine and seats basically lol!

Only just noticed you are 16. They are quite strict in the casinos with folks underage being anywhere near the tables! I tried to play blackjack and got asked for ID (I was 30 at the time). Driving licence card was fine.


You have to be 21 to drink too.

Sure was. Lady Penelope going out and I believe it was Ruby Tuesday coming back (not sure if I'm getting confused with NYC in 2006 on that though)

Excellent stuff. As if by magic, I've found some videos too (take off from Heathrow and landing at LAX):
