Keith's Track Day

I spent the day at the race track, racing go-carts and exotic cars (thanks to a vendor that invited me to attend a short meeting followed by the racing).  It was a lot of fun.  I was one of the top drivers on the go-carts, which were incredibly fast, and had a lot of fun driving a Ferrari F430 and a new Corvette Stingray C7.  They had a coach in the car with you that would help you line up my path and tell you how fast to take the corners and encouraging you to go insanely fast on the straightaways.  You definitely heard the tires squealing and could feel the car slide a little on the corners.  Then when you'd stop you could smell the burnt rubber from the tires.  It was really fun.  The new Corvette was really impressive.
