I know it's SlOW but what say you guys?

It's slow but the drive down can be through awesome terrain and seems like a good bucket list item for 25$ and a photo op of all photo ops, think I'm doin' it.

you're gonna pay money to follow someone around the track? you don't need a spyder to do that. i guess if you're more about the pictures than the driving, but then you could just stand next to someone else's car and save youself $50k ...

Driving at Watkins Glen and speeds will not exceed 55 mph?

Sounds like being married to a super model and not .... well, you get the idea.

It's not really the photos dude, it's my spyder today, since I'm not on FB or in my twenties, I don't need any fake "I'm rich" pics next to someone elses car. It's the notion of driving a track I've seen some races on in my life and having the experience of driving on it. There currently are no tracks I know of near me where you can go put it in a wall like that douche from shark tank did with his 458 Italia. As for TH, I'm with ya, that was my thought for titling the thread, hell I'll go faster on the way for free.

I believe I'd do a DE instead and get a little speed up. Watkins is a big, fast track. 55 will seem like you'e walking.
