A friend of mine invited me to go to a Track Day at a local race track... man was it a blast. I was able to get a ride with the owner of a 400HP RX-7, as well as in my friend's dad's Camaro. There were a bunch of cars there... 2 ferraris, a Porsche GT2, and 3 Lotus Elises to name a few.

You can read the rest on my blog here http://www.paulstamatiou.com/index.php/2005/09/17/road-atlanta-track-day/

and see some of the pics here http://www.flickr.com/photos/pauls/sets/965568/

I should have about 5 or so video clips online in a little while.. i'll link to them in the blog

Yeah... unfortunately it was a C class which meant the driver was new or something because C is the slower and suckier car class. It was a shame, the driver didn't seem to push the car at all, he was letting people pass him all the time.

Cool pics. Looks like you had a really cool time!

I work part time as a racing school instructor but have never been to Road Atlanta but have always wanted to. Almost got a drive there this year in the American Le-Mans Championship in a Porsche GT3 but my sponsor never came through with the money in time so had to stay in the UK. Oh well always next time Smile

Why don't you put your Mac mini in the Mustang? That's a win-win! Laughing
