Title: More Supercar fun
Post by: RayW on May 02, 2019, 03:08:17 PM
Following my supercar drive day at Brands Hatch race circuit last September, I was back there again on Monday for more fun, thanks to a combined Christmas and birthday present from my wife.
I drove three of the same cars as last time - the Audi R8, Ferrari California, and Lamborghini Gallardo, but this time I also upgraded to the Lamborghini Huracan, which is the successor to the Gallardo. With a V10 engine delivering over 600 BHP, a 0-60 MPH time of 2.9 seconds, and a glorious soundtrack it was a pretty exciting drive, reaching just about 130 MPH at the end of the main straight.
Prior to my drives, I had two hot passenger laps in a BMW M3, and at the end of the day I finished with an incredible hot passenger lap in an Ariel Atom, one of the fastest accelerating cars around.

I dread to think how much new brakes would be, but when you have spent best part of a quarter of a million pounds on a car, a few thousand is nothing.
All those Ferraris, Audis, Nissans, Porsches etc were a bit of a pain, but great fun blowing them all away!

All of us in a wooden hay wagon behind the Lambo might cause a bit of trouble with the aerodynamics at 230 km/h...... :naughty:

Overheard:  "do you smell smoke?"     and  "haaaaaaannnnnngggg ooooonnnnn Chhhhrrrriiiiissssss......."

But it would be fun for a little while until the winky little clutch disk got launched into low earth orbit!    :cheers:
