Very nice! I am so jealous of tracks with a little scenery. All we get is brown sand/rocks here.

Fantastic vid. This is sort of thing the car was made for. I can't imagine buying a 580hp muscle car just to trundle around surface streets or park it car shows.

I've done several track days in my former S2000 as well as the California Superbike School at VIR and most recently Boss Track Attack at Miller Motorsports park (I have a 2012 Boss 302). Every day on a race track is a good one.

If you never done a track day, make plans to do one now. It's tremendous fun and if you exercise a modicum of caution you won't crash. But even if you do, you can buy track day insurance.

For those in the Atlanta area, the SCCA is having a PDX on Nov 2 at Road Atlanta. I would be great if one you would sign up and provide me the opportunity to smoke a Zl1 at the track.
