Currently standing in line to go around the track in an AMG. Girlfriend has never done anything like that...think I’ll keep the camera handy.

Got some free tickets for today, went with a few mates.

Overall disappointing experience, not enough to see or do to justify the day out.

Going around the track in an E63 AMG S Coupe with a driving instructor. The video doesn't give a good representation of speed, but this car is very quick and handles well, some serious G-Forces through the corners.

I went with the Paul Greengrass "Shaky Cam" effect. (Also, I was holding my phone in one hand, because corners).

I thoroughly enjoyed the show. Went around as a passenger in a few cars and drove the new Clio RS Trophy around the track... also did the little course in the Up!

Definitely worth the entry fee. Didn't have time to go to the off-road section unfortunately. Was there from 11:00 to about 6:30

Yeah you don't realise how hard it is to hold a phone until you get into the passenger seat of a sporty car around a track.

Yea man, I did my best but that car pulls some Gs through the corners. Unfortunately it doesn't translate to film well.
