    A Few 458 Challenges Driving Around Town

    Must be nice to be Ferrari. You get to drive non-street legal vehicles around town on public roads with no hassles from the local authorities. Smiley


    Re: A Few 458 Challenges Driving Around Town

    It's probably less than half a mile for them to travel from the factory to the Fiorano circuit through part of the town. I saw a 458 Challenge car drive this route when I was at the factory last month. It sounded fantastic. The noise from the circuit when a few cars are flying around it at speed is something else especially when your hear an F1 car doing any laps.


    Re: A Few 458 Challenges Driving Around Town

    I'm sure an F1 you can hear throughout the entire town. I remember when I went to Indy for the F1 races a few years back, by coincidence a co-workers mother lived 5 blocks(!) from the track. I got room and board for $25 a day for 3 days within a 10 minutes walk to the track.  Every morning I was greeted by the sounds of F1 engines in the paddock warming up.

    And, although the track sits a bit below grade like a bowl, I could heard the cars starting up and doing testing laps even when I was almost a mile away  at the store.

    I remember watching 60 Minutes years ago and they mentioned that Lambo test drivers are permitted to drive as fast as they want around the outskirts of Sant'Agata.

    The cars do have a license place attached on the rear and as they are running on cut tires and with all mandatory requirements (indicators, windscreen wipers) one cut assume they fall under a prototype category?

    Would be great if one of the Italian members can comment on that.

     A good friend of mine is getting his Challenge early May. If I can squedule it , I will be able to go to a track day with him
