That's pretty sweet...There's a Bridgestone course similar to that near where I live, but it's like $600 for a half day...although we get to drive these:

85 pounds is like $160...it sounds like fun, but if I were you, I'd wait a while and try to go to the 'ring.

You only live once, you'll likely never own most of those cars, and in the end you can't take $ with you. I'd do it.

I agree. Although there are packages that let you do the driving sometimes, although that might be a bit more expensive. Jamie, you don't have a driving license do you?

I don't know, personally I'd rather drive the cars myself. But if it's something you really want to do, and forking over 80 won't hurt your pocket, then by all means let us know how it goes.

I'm assuming it's digital? In which case, yes, use any hosting service like Photobucket. As far as I know it'll work the same as uploading still pics...just a bit longer because of their size!!

It's a fairly new thing I believe, although they've been available for atleast a year now. They are pricy too, £245 was the cheapest I've seen doing a quick search! I'd imagine they'd double up as a standard camera, too though!
