How to Properly "Exercise" your F430!

The Houston Chapter of the Ferrari Club of America recently held a track day at MSR (Motorsports Ranch) near Angleton, TX on Monday (Jan 3, 2011). Aside from a bountiful amount of beautiful Ferrari's, we had a fair amount of Lambos, Porsches, BMWs and other exotics. I ran 4 sessions of 30 minutes each around this 2.4 mile, 17-turn course. It was an amazing day with perfect weather. For those that have not put your F-car on the track, you are missing something very special that Enzo wanted you to experience!!! Below are three videos (Pit View, Windshield and Cockpit View) from the various sessions along with some still photos. I had the pleasure of running with a new 458 and an F40 in one of my sessions (reference the Cockpit view link). Happy New Year to the Forum!

Beautiful 430. Looks like you had a great time, and in the proper way to push you Ferrari to its limits.

Cheers.

It's always a beautiful sight to see a Ferrari run free in its natural habitat.

I think that's a GoPro HD Motorsports Hero.

It needs a Micover...

Thanks - awkward mic moments but I know that feeling.
