    I had my track day experience today that my lovely Wife got for me as an Xmas pressie last year.

    Luckily the weather was good for me, as i was dreading taking one of those beasts out in the wet.

    To say i had fun would be an understatement, but boy did it go FAST!!

    I had two cars, one was the Lambo Gallardo and the other was the Audi R8, both were as good as each other, however i think the Lambo took the edge just due to the paddle shift gearbox.

    I have taken a few pics.......enjoy :hubbahubba:

    thats prestwold hall,I did the aston gallardo one and have to say the road in is a terrible state and also the cars weren't exactly perfect...the gallardo had centre caps missing/numberplate had black mould on which isn't major but when your shelling out top money you would expect better

    This was at Prestwold Hall in Loughboro, just outside Lesta, i thought it was really good, it did go very quickly, but I was impressed.

    G60jet, oh man, if only i knew, you could've sorted me with a mates rate DVD ;)

    No emergency stops, nearly had to though when i tried to get an 'extra' lap...lol

    Jase, loving your profile comment.....damn right ;)

    Wahey, luckily it was a hot day, so ended up having an ice cream, prices werent extortionate for them so was happy bout that....couple of quid for 2, so I wasnt complaining.

    I was tempted to an all day brekkie, for £4.95, but then went for the ice cream instead.

    I did the rally day there, awesome day out, blasting the **** out of evo's, scooby's and I even set fire to a focus rs, shame.......

    I also went with my father in law while he thrashed astons around Brunters, not quite the same standing, watching and listening! Especially when the 1st thing I swa was this, just a small selection of cars they had....

    Looks great chap.

    I had a Gallardo thrill mid year @ Bruntinthorpe - awesome.

    however, I got there and when my name was shouted out, I ended up being put in the lime green Mercialargo(sp), I'm not too complain :)

    It was all over too fast though :(
