Call me sacrilegious, but I really have no faith in my Ferrari 355 as a track day tool. It just feels wrong to be subjecting a thing of beauty to such abuse.

I am always worrying about what mechanically might go wrong, or what happens if I fall off the track, to enjoy the sensation of driving close to the limit.

Do any of you guys use your Prancing Horses on the track, or do you favour something more hardcore, more industrial, like a Porsche or a Caterham?

I have to say personally I actually enjoy track days more with my 964RS or GT3 than my Ferrari.

Cheers for the advice guys,

It's not for the lack of track day skill, it's just that I think there are much better tools for the job than a Ferrari. They deserve to be loved, stroked, eased out on sunny days and then given their head on public roads where the mechanicals will not be put through as much sustained punishment.

I think I will keep the Ferrari for 'special' days and let the Porsches loose on the track days, though a trip to the Nurburgring in the 355 has to be in the offing. That is too good an opportunity to miss...
