    Huge fantastic LEC win at Monza! Wow that was a nerve wracking race for Ferrari fans. Very happy for this rising star.

    VET? Making mental errors all too often. Sure, Q3 was a bit of a ‘cluster farg’ for everyone but he didn’t help himself in the race. Unsafe return to track? Geez.

    Hey guys, just wanted to share an update on the track day at Autodromo Modena earlier this month.

    So I tried the Ferrari 458 Challenge and the Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo for 5 laps each. Turns out the track was available on my birthday so wasn't a bad way to spend the day at all. Tried the Ferrari first and of course it instantly felt pretty epic instantly getting behind the wheel. As expected, it handled and sounded great. Although to me it felt a bit like an upgraded version of the 458 Speciale and almost lacked that true race car feel I was hoping to experience. I wasn't disappointed by any means as it was a complete blast but just came up a bit short...

    ...well that instantly changed once I got into the Lamborghini. I can't even begin to describe the sensory overload once you climb behind the wheel. From the racing wheel, the Motec display, the racing seats and harness, the various toggle switches in the control stack etc. The clutch took a bit of getting used to when getting going from a standing start. As soon as you fire up the engine, it was a whole other experience. Just the instant power delivery, the raw sound, cornering grip and the insane brakes...it was a surreal experience.

    In fact, I was so taken in by the sensations that I was way too tentative with the car (probably at 60-70%) that I decided I had to go back a couple days later for a 7 lap run. This time around after knowing what to expect from the car, I tried focusing more on enjoying it's performance capabilities as much as possible. Accelerating earlier out of the corners, using more of the track/kerbs, carrying a little more speed through the corners and braking even later. I was literally vibrating after getting out of the car. Just an unbelievable experience and one that'll stay with me for a long time.

    Anyway that's enough rambling on, so here are some onboard and track side videos of both runs, enjoy.
