My morning at the racetrack

I spent a few hours at Richmond International Raceway this morning driving a 500HP car around.  I did a session from The Racing School (christmas present -- thanks, dear!).  Fun times.  I'm not actually a Nascar fan, but I do like me some vehicles.

I did 5 laps as a passenger with a pro driver, and 15 laps on my own, noone else in the car.  

Awesome things:

Things that would make it better:

In any event, I recommend it.

P.S. Fun fact: The cars are actually cambered and balanced for the all-left track -- if you just let the wheel go they go left by themselves.
