Well, on a computer it's a lot easier to get around the track.
It is however fun to do and i will be doing it again next year ;D

Must say it made my car run even better now. :mellow:

You can use grand turismo to see how the track goes, but real track driving is something else.

If you have the chance to do a track drive, just do it.

I was quite surprised it went so well actually.
Car held up well,however the brakes are not really up to the job.
After a few laps they had a bit of fading.


To be continued next year ;D ;D

I think the main advantage you have is the way the newer fords handle and that makes it smoother to drive.

I drove a fiesta with the 1.6 ecoboost and was very impressed how the car handled and the power it had.
