Hmm to sum it up, in one sentence I’ll say I’m very disappointed in the poor skill and attitude of the drivers.



As I was arriving to Infenion raceway I was like what the heck why can’t I hear the Ferrari’s screaming. I went into the first garage door and saw tons of Ferrari’s, I was smiling like a two year old. I blocked out everything…I felt like I walked into a very expensive candy shop, and every candy was red, not that I cared much! I was just so happy to be there. Then it hit me again, why can’t I hear those Ferrari’s screaming alive. So I went to the grandstands to see what was up. Apparently they had the safety car out, right when I got there, the circuit turned green. Then they started to ‘haul ass’ well… they seem like they were driving very slow, so I figured I timed them. They were averaging about 1:47 seconds around the circuit.. wow..a Porsche GT3 can do it in 1:23..so it got me thinking, these guys must really suck! (I’m sorry Ferrari owners, I love Ferrari’s to death, I’m a hardcore F1 Ferrari supporter) So the cars came in, and you see them all banged up, first thing that ran through my mind is who the heck are these sponsors for these cars. So I tried to ask a driver that just got out of a F430, boy was he a dick. I told him, nice race- did you have fun ?- he smiled and turned away. I was like oh okay. Walked down the pat and saw someone sitting in a trailer and we started talking…the owner of that trailer owns 3 Ferrari race cars (F430s), and the driver gave me permission to see them. I started asking him, how does one get into racing with this program since it ran through my mind, I can run laps around these guys, they drive so slow!!!



Then he says, everyone that runs are owners of the Ferraris they are driving out there, so their goes my hope in driving one of those suckers! So the F1 clientel is getting ready to go out and run, so I was like yes these suckers are going to rip things apart! Boy, oh boy, was I in for the biggest disappointment of my life….they were lapping 1:44’s….I’m sorry but I can’t believe Ferrari lets people like this drive their cars. My intension is not to offend anyone but, I’m shocked of why such people buy these car’s if they don’t intend to drive them like they are ment to, yes money blah blah toys blah blah, but still.



Point is, well I guess I have no point I just want to rant how disappointed I’m…maybe one day I’ll buy a Ferrari and show them…as a matter in fact, seeing these owners today, it killed my desire to ever buy a Ferrari, and I have wanted a Ferrari since I was like 0. I don’t want to be classified as ‘one of them exotic car owners who can’t drive’ cuz i can drive.. i have won karting championships, everytime i go to track events i usually am the fastest guy out there...



Anyways here are some nice pictures:

Welcome to the wonderful world of realizing how most ferrari owners are. Dicks, who never drive their cars past 4K RPMs, and cant drive for shit.

There is a 5th gear episode in which tiff and vicki compete in the racing series in italy. They talk about how bad the drivers are and how they just hit each other and dont really follow lines. It looks like a shitload of fun to me though how ever. With that said, i used to be a huge ferrari fan, my friends dad owns one, ive been up close to F40s, F430s, F360s, all of them except enzo and F50, and im just no longer a fan anymore. Ive had to many run ins with loser owners. Lamborghini and Porsche FTW!

No offense to Roger, Enrique, or Vadim but some Porsche owners aren't all that pleasant attitudewise either. :(

Any of you guys remember ben keaton from 6 speed?? Well i attended his funeral with a bunch of the people off 6speed and i have to say the ferrari owners there were pompous asses. They looked down on the p-car owners. I felt so out of place as well, they were so uptight its not even funny. The pcar owners were talking about how to make more money and watche sand crap at this guys funeral. Im just thinking dude the guy just died why are you all talking about making money, buying watches and cars, there is a widow over there and a daughter who will never know her father.... :wack:

I know exactly how you guys feel. The only thing I'd like to add to the list is MB owners. I live in snobville, and everyone here thinks they own the country. MB owners here think they are important, Pcar owners here think they are even more important, and Fcars owners think they rule them all. The ONLY exception who I've met in real life to my rule is Vadim...that guy is cooler than an Icee in Alaska :thumbup:

I don't own an exotic, or even a sports car, since my needs from a daily driver require practicality and convenience. Hell, I was happy hauling ass around town in my 96 Buick. Status and image mean nothing to me. But the funny point of the matter is these exotic owners think they are exotic as well, and for some reason also have an inferiority complex. They just need to be reminded that just because someone doesn't own an exotic doesn't mean they can't get into one just as easily as any of them.

thank you :)

i agree w/ you guys most people that own epensive, not necessarily exotic cars are stuck up :dunno:

about a month ago i was out hitting up the canyons when i saw a moded wrx go by (i was on mulholland and he was going south on laure cyn). so i followed him, we played a little but i could tell he wasnt the greates driver. im behind him and i turn on my blinker to go left, all of a sudden he gets in front of me and turns left, after we make the turn (residential area) he pulls over and flags me down. he asks whether i couldve gone faster, i :D and say yes, he says much faster?. so i think about it for a sec and just say, you wanna go for a ride? this kid (he was 17 i think) trips out, he's like, are you serious, yull take me for a ride. im like yeah, no problem. so we go for a ride and he's speechless for a little after wards. i guess what im tryin to say is; i dont give a fuck whether you drive an old ass civic or a murci, you an enthusiast, then we cool :drink:
