    That's OK. I'm sure you have other addictions other than XF.

    Horse? Track and field?

    Or do you mean things like Sears point and Laguna Seca ;)

    Didn't even think about different types of tracks.
    Road Courses. I'd love to drive Laguna Seca someday. A friend offered his M3 to me if I get out there. :)
    I'm in the southeast.

    I had my wife's 2003 Cooper S out on the track. It was a ball. Point and shoot.

    Yeah, loads of fun, especially on the more curvy tracks. Love to embarrass a P Car now and again.

    Of course as MINI owners ya'll are members of MotoringAlliance.com too...

    have had a go in my e39 M5 on the strip, don't remember the times...but it was more about watching my surroundings blur without endangering anyone else.
    The have (or had at least) open days on the track and drag strip a couple hours from me in upstate new york.

    Went the first time there years ago with my uncle who's company sponsored a drag bike. They used to have a kart track as well with a spray down section to give go karts a new fun twist on the track. That I remember.
    There is nothing like seeing an 18 wheel rig with a turbine strapped to it and flames coming on out of the smoke stack as it takes off and does a wheelie.

    Until I discovered I was infact mortal

    Then I took up this.....

    Because it was perceived as safer :D

    And finally liked doing this

    Just because it was a totally hatstand thing to do.

    Regards
