V8 race experience

After some info on the v8 race add in the back of the current issue of performance ford mag. Whats the deal here you pay $299 to drive a car flat stick around eastern creek. I remember reading or watching something with what look like the same cars saying they are stock xr8's with bigger brakes. Do they really let anyone loose in these cars even a stock xr8 would be kool, hell for $299 and 5 laps at the creek it saves crashin my car.

Re: V8 race experience

Yer its a standard car with 'racing spec brakes and racing steering wheel'. For 300 bucks I dont really see that its worth it, you have an instructor with you to help you with braking zones and turning and shit, so theres no real fun (drifting XR8's for example, and doing random burnouts)

But it still would be pretty good to push a BA to it's limits and not worrie about anything. Hell i know i could use a bit of advice with my driving.

Take that money and sign up for an advanced driving course at John Bowe Driving Institute...same fun, but you also learn to drive right.
