    As the title says, I'm driving an R8 :)
    Just a track day at Silverstone, which I got for christmas but have only just got around to doing.
    I'm quite excited as you'd expect :)

    Not even sat in one yet let alone driven one, First time on a track too :blink:

    done a few of those now including the r8, awesome experiance but you'll find the instructor wont let you anywhere near the limits of the car

    driven an r8, porsche, caterham and nissan gtr

    would recommend the nissan out of the lot but the r8 had amazing brakes

    When I went the instructor was good as gold, he kept pushing me and let me take it to the limit, didn't think it was possible to go around some corners that fast!

    Was about a week or so ago now,
    but what a car :) Breaks were ridiculously sharp mind but you do get used to it after a while.
    Drove a F360 on the same day too, But have to say I had more fun driving the audi :)

    I just didn't want to get out of it at the end of the day but hey ho, I'll just keep putting my penny's in a jar until I can afford one :)

    Glad you enjoyed it, its a must in my opinion for every car fan because most people aren't lucky enough to own such a car and get the full experience of one!

    Glad you enjoyed it mate, did this a couple of years ago with the Lambo as well, I personally preffered the Lambo more, just for the reason that it had paddle shifting rather than normal gearstick.
