    Not driven on a track with one but I've had R8's from work for the weekend a few times and they are awesome. I'm guessing it going to be a lot of fun on a track!

    I think the instructor drives around showing you braking points,apex's ect,then you do 6 8 laps and they show you where your racing line braking might be going wrong,next birthday il tel the miss's to rent me an r8 for the weekend only around a grand lol pfff

    It's normally 1 lap warm up and then 2 laps full beans and always with instructor.

    If you get a chance. Pay to go in the v8 atom with then on site stig. Simply the best driving experience of my life. I had Ben Collins driving me last summer, before the top gear furor kicked off, and he's one hell of a driver. The best I have been driven by at any rate.

    We were side on 50 meters before each corner and just sliding around at what seemed like full speed, i have never felt g-force like it outside of nemesis at alton towers. He absolutely hammered it past Nissan skyline Gtrs, r8 and gallardo's like they didn't deserve to be on the same track. After the experience, I could see why.
