    Tom.....really nice piece you did there, and one thing you said that (for me at least) is SO important... when
    you said you DRIVE the car. To me, if you are not going to drive it, buy a picture and hang it on the wall.

    EXCELLENT STUFF THERE !!!!

    It's a great video - reminds me of the ones on Petrolicious.

    I have my own 328 video from AMP, made 7 years ago while the track was still under construction! The Ferrari community was invited to see the track, basically complete for the first time, and we were offered rides around the track in our own cars, but with their guys driving since there was still work going on. When my turn came, I surrendered the passenger seat to my young friend Kevin Mosley, since he had a video camera. Here is Kevin's video, with Jeremy Porter at the wheel:

    Kevin actually shot two videos on that trip; he mounted another camera on the rear deck pointing backwards, and hoped that it wouldn't fall off (it didn't).

    It took a while for Jeremy to get used to the shifter, because he had been driving paddle-shifter cars all morning long!

    I remember that track when it was that new/raw. I see turn 11 was resurfaced but I use to drive over a HUGE bump before that.

    BTW Nice videos!

    Hello All.

    Looks like this could turn into the AMP video thread! :)

    This is a video of my Merak SS with the new exhaust system being put through some paces at AMP. This exhaust system was developed by .the Merak Group and the AMP track was.perfect for testing things out. I think you can see Tom's car parked in a few shots and some video magic right at the end of the clip.



    Ciao,
    George
