    Just come back from an excellent run in a Ferrari 458 challenge car with the drift limits guys. They were really a great friendly and informative group of guys, with lots of cars in their garage. I wanted to do the McLaren MP4-12C GT3 but it was out of action, so I got to try this 430 challenge cup car out.

    Yes the ffb was really heavy lol! Also matched my t300 GTE wheel I have...

    I had trouble with one corner which I seemed to want to throttle more on as I thought the car had more grip in it, I soon found out I was wrong lol. But the grip and the brake stopping power just awesome plus the acceleration! a must try!!

    Not a huge track and I was limited in gearing but gave a great feel of one of these cup race cars. Can I say... it seemed faster onboard than the gopro suggests! ha

    Next is that macca!!! to come soon!

    Heres some pics and a onboard (sorry about the awful phone pics) also have some pro photography to come.

    I felt the R8 more stable and gave me more confidence to accelerate.
    The Gallardo is more brutal. When you change gears, you receive a punch in the back. :D

    I had a good chuckle when the instructor said something like, "You keep accelerating and I'll keep braking". :cool:

    Looks like the sound guys for rF2 will have to do a complete re-think about exterior sounds. Replace the engine with obnoxious howling wind noise!!! :D

    Looked like a lot of fun mate, I've done a couple of BMW and Merc ones in the past and they are always awesome.

    I just wanted to point out how fakey the grass looked in his side-of-the-car videos. No un-even textures and the like(perhaps cuz they mowed the lawn?) :) yea, yea, being petty and jealous....
