    In July this year, a mate of mine reached the milestone of 50 years old and in October I’ll be 60. To mark these significant events, we recently treated ourselves to a special birthday present – a day enjoying the ‘Ultimate Supercar Driving Experience’ at the Croft Racing Circuit. Drove several laps of the circuit in each of the following: Porsche Cayman, Audi R8, Lamborghini Aventador and Ferrari F430. My favourite on the day was (of course) the Ferrari, which is simply superb to drive and a great thrill. A few photos of me trying to keep the cars on the track:

    Great present and photos. I think the Lamborghini looks the best, and has the most grunt.

    Not as common as the rest!

    An awesome drive Liam. 6.5 litres of raw power and glued to the track like a limpit. Like sitting on the front of a rocket! You'd love it mate ;)
