Well thanks to Mclaren for getting my car ready in time for me to offer rides at this Charity event I help to run. It was today at Fords test track at Dunton:D
There were 50 Supercars there including Enzo, Murci, Coutach, Diablo Roadster,512 Boxer, Testarossa, 458 as well as an array of cobra replicas, atoms, Astons Viper etc and our very own MP4

There was a special group of sought after cars in the Blue Ribband Class where the public pay extra for their car choice and again MP4 was amongst them. Guess what 4 to 1 chose the MP4 (official)and I worked my nuts off:eek: People were queing for 3 and a half hours to go in MP4 and all said after their ride - worth every minuite of the wait what a car (what a driver:eek:)
I used 154 litres of fuel and had the fastest recorded time including the Enzo and on the straight was 2 mph faster - maybe he wasnt trying so hard.

So how did the car perform on track - frigging amazing:D Felt at one with it
like a go kart.Suspension is amazing so much smoother than 458 and gears are so smooth. I did experience a little brake fade and wonder if ceramics would have been a better choice even for road use though the concensus is not.

Now ask me Andy would I change NO WAY

You are being reprimanded for the amount of emotion expressed in this post. It has already been decreed that your car is sterile and you, and any passengers you may give rides to, are prohibited from having a passionately good time. Please put your settings back in normal mode and rephrase this post with less colorful prose. Use math formulas, wherever possible.

To hell with it, Bruce. Sounds like a blast was had by all - thanks for sharing. :)
