    Had my first track day with the Stradale on Monday. In a word - awesome! The car performed flawlessly. 540km to get there, comfortable ride, plenty of fun on the twisty bits and lots of noise in the tunnels! The track experience was out of this world. This car is a track monster. The noise, the brakes, the acceleration, the grip...all fantastic.

    Zero fade on the brakes after 300km of track work. Some brake dust but not excessive. The instructor, a Stradale owner, said that Ferrari have tracked cars for 40,000km and not replaced the rotors..we'll see!

    Used a suction-cup camera for video (thanks for the tip Warren). There's a 10 minute QuickTime movie here: http://homepage.hispeed.ch/bjc138/MagnyCours2004/Video.mov

    Since a picture is worth a 1,000 words, here's one after just one lap where we all left together and guess what car's in front?!!

    Hope you enjoy the movie.

    Different track day and different track.

    From what I saw and remember, the Magny Cours complex has the track in the video, the F1 track, a karting arena and a golf course. We could all go to a track day there, bumo into only a few others and never realise!
