    I took my Stradale to its first track day yesterday at New Jersey Motorsports Park, Lightning track.
    While it rained all morning, it cleared up a bit after lunch and I was able to get in a couple decent sessions athough there were still some puddles and mud on the racing line.

    The CS is an absolute blast on the track! Its very quick and nimble and can carry a lot of corner speed. The brakes are tremendous and had zero fade.
    The F1 transmission is a joy on the track and the sound is fantastic, the video just does not do it justice. The car didn't miss a beat all day! It's a perfect car to drive to the track, drive hard all day and drive home. I can't wait to go again...

    Im just getting used to Lightning here, in the video you see me chasing a 997 GT3 on slicks and a T1 racing Corvette.

    Nice video. Looks like a few mid corner rises to get your attention at this track! Soft, quiet hands on the wheel too...always good to see that.
