    Anyone ever do any of this?

    I'd love to get out on a track one day but never have, to date.

    What kind of car were you driving? Must have been fun! My buddy was in a Nascar car in the poconos, but - like to make right turns also and more interested in road or F1 types of tracks as opposed to Indy and Nascar.

    drove different cars.

    a viper around a small oval-ish track.

    drove a pickup truck on a skid pad

    drove a neon in a braking course

    on the big track we drove an open cockpit mini formula 1 kind of car.

    I did a track day at Limerock, drove their M3 for four hours. So much fun.

    Love that video at around 1:25, a shot in the engine bay when he hits the brakes and it compresses the camera mount

    That's exactly the type of car that I'd love to get on a track.

    APR, the company that made the video I posted, is a company that mods audis and vw's. They had a bunch of cars down in Miami this past weekend, including the R8 the video was taken from.
