    Indycar Experience

    Well, the long awaited Indycar ride was completed yesterday. A 4 hour drive roundtrip for a 2 minute ride at 180 mph, but worth it. IMS is legend and that was a bucket list item for me. I'm in the red Dallara.

    Surprising amount of G force in those turns, more violent than it looks on tv.
    Much respect for those guys going around 200 times! My son went with me, which made it even better. And yes, we drove the G4 there and back. From one of the lowest hp cars on the road to a de-tuned Indycar. Mirage has a much more comfortable ride, though! Sorry for the sideways pics.

    I don't know. I literally never access this site through a mobile device.

    Very cool, AtomicPunk. I've heard racers can lose 10 lbs. from those G forces during a race. Race car driver is an athlete.

    For Christmas 2019 I bought a ticket for myself for the Ferrari Experience. Well, I haven't been able to go yet. Can't wait though.

    Go do it and post it! I'd like to hear about it. Life is short; Where is that held at?

    Another on my bucket list would be a ride in a fighter jet. There's places that do it, but it's waaay more expensive. 3 to 4 grand for 30 min. Probably cant justify that, but I can dream.

    Toronto Motorsports. I had the choice of Ferrari with an automatic, Porsche with a manual, Nissan GTR manual, and an automatic Lambo.

    Even though I drive a 3 pedal car every day, I chose the auto. Call me a scaredy cat I just didn't wanna break anything lol.

    A manual GTR? Was it 20 years old?
