For those of us who don't get to do something like this on any regular basis (or at all!), it's nice to get the virtual experience...

It's a few years old now, but worth the watch time. Man, I love listening to that V10.

Don't have attention span for 8 minutes but from what I did watch that guy definitely drove it like he stole it. Tire squealing on most corners! I had my fun with mine on a track but certainly didn't go 10/10. Can't afford to put it in a wall. Sebring and some autocross action...

Autocross I over pushed the car (figured open runway worse thing is a hurt ego and some cones go down (although I hit none). Ran the car in full ESC off (zero nannies). Lot more careful/smooth at Sebring and did NOT turn ESC off (performance mode so ESC: Sport).

Lots of understeer there. I'm hoping the back-ordered Ohlin coilovers help control that on my car. We'll see...

I wish I could of had my R8 back when I lived in Germany. Took my Z06 and 5.0 Mustang there quite a few times though.

Surprisingly many R8's on the ring, mainly gen2s though. I am there with my Megane RS tracktool at least once a month and always have to roll down my window when they overtake me in Foxhole :cool:
The Renn Taxi R8 is frequently parked accross the street of Apex, but I have never seen it on track :-/
