Yep, GT3X is an incredible track car, but nothing compare with coming to and leaving a track day with a Senna. No trailer hassles and all that jazz.
The Mclaren Senna definitely very definitely needs far more respect. Ayrton I believe would have definitely of rated it.

And your absolutely correct on the trailer aspect.馃檪

That would be a question for either @ImHuntingWabbits or @unmac

The more applicable question is when/where/how often can a race car be driven vs. a street car. Do you need to belong to a private country club type track do maximize a race car or to even learn the race car (not so easy to do on a typical track day).

How much more does it cost to attend a track day with a gt3x (full race team support), how much notice needs to be given to a race team for the support for a track day, how easy is it to do a u-turn if you can't attend. I can decide to attend a track day the night before with senna, I can do a u turn and not show up, I don't need any assistance, I go through a set of tires every two track days and I go through about $500 in brake pads every track day. It's very cheap to track senna/street car.

What is the prize money given to the fastest car on a track day.

To answer the question; at laguna seca; it's going to be a 10 second difference between the two (it hasn't been tried yet) and the only way this can be achieved is if you have the track all to yourself.

Race car as significant as this is not really practical for the most part.

I do know the owner of the car in this video. He loves the car but goes back and forth on track days with it and his street car (practicality and all).

Race cars for track days is a wet dream for the people on the sidelines.

I'm just watching the conversation flow and evolve, but the owner of the car in the first video until about 10 or so days ago I knew absolutely nothing about. I only know because he's actually got a Hennessey Venom F5 and apparently alot of McLaren's. Perhaps something to investigate at a later juncture.
