It's difficult to explain just exactly why there is such a mystique around supercars. Maybe it's the dream for most. But the reality of owning let alone driving these cars are much different.
The long and short of it is that we went in expecting to be blown away. Don't get me wrong these are the pinnacle of "street" super cars.
But they are not race cars. I thought these cars would have been more hard core. But they just feel like bigger and faster versions of lower priced sports cars. (Cough Cough S2000, FRS, Miata, Vette) I would take a seasons worth of competitive kart racing over owning a super car any day. It's just impossible to justify on any level the price tag.
However the experience was worth even a few grand if you can swing it. I ran about 30 laps. If you know the track and get a chance to run these cars I'd highly recommend it as it helps put things into perspective and of course its fun too.
