Driving a Lamborghini Gallardo at Prestwold Hall - Everyman Driving Experience
Me, Driving a Lamborghini Gallardo at Prestwold Hall 8th Oct 09. This was
the second car I drove on the track that day (first was the Ferrari 575) I
then drove the Aston Martin Vantage and the Porsche 997.
I must say for anyone considering doing this track day, or giving it as a
present - DO IT!!
Its totally different to the other cars. This feels like a 'super car',
whereas the others felt more like top end road cars. The tiptronic system
is a lot more responsive than the Ferarri's, the steering is precise and
responsive and you can really feel the 500bhp, this car literally sticks to
the track (in the dry at least)!
If I get a chance to do it again, I'll be doing 12 laps in just the
Lamborghini (btw if you had the Lambo as your last car, I recon you could
get some seriously fast lap times)!! I found it the easiest to drive, but
it depends on what you're looking for - the two guys on my team preferred
the Vantage and the 977 and found the Lambo quite difficult to drive.
Whatever the case the Lamborghini is a lovely beast to be respected,
cherished and driven like a bull out if its pen :0)
