^ thats what were here for... To tell you the truth most people need some coxing to get up to even 8/10's. Even guys with track experience I am telling to push a little more in areas.
Thats why were in the right seat, were definitely not going to put you in a bad situation.
Usually by the 4-5th lap I have 8 out of 10 people moving at their perceived 10/10ths. The others usually are just comfortable at their speed enjoying the car.

After reading the FAQ it appears that they will let you open the car up if you have some prior track experience. I don't want to go out there and drive 10/10ths in a car I've never driven, but it would be nice to be able to take 1 or 2 laps at 8/10ths. Can I expect to be able to open the car up a little once the instructor has some confidence in the driver?

yes we both are instructors at Exotics Racing. Just like Brandon said, we are there to help you through the track safely, enjoy the experience, and improve your driving techniques.

The instructors are some of the best i have had in any racing application, Autox/HPDE. Considering amateurs are wielding high dollar supercars, they are amazing at allowing you to push the car safely and helping you improve your lap times.

There are a few of us on the other forum heading down there on Feb 26th. Can't wait! I'll try to get some more pictures and whatnot when we're there.

I'm on a budget so I'm thinking GTR, R8, and a drift ride at this point.

No gt3 or gt2 only the 997.2 turbo s.
To be honest the Italia is my favorite but that turbo is a lot of fun too.

if you had to choose between the 458 the 430 scud or the LP-550 gallardo what would be your choice?
