First drive in Ferrari F430 (track) vs. Porsche PDK

My first drive in an F430!!
Well if PDK is anything like the paddles in the amazing F430 then I've got it all wrong about automatic transmissions. But I decided to just go full automatic in the Ferrari so I could concentrate on the driving.
This is without a doubt the wave of the future. F430 is AMAZING!!!

Please disregard the off-color humor at the begining and the poor image quality.
My video equipment is a little old.

Okay, who was it that was complaining about me putting on lipstick while racing with the PDK?

See, it's a cinch!

Didn't see the whole thing, PL, was there lipstick at the end?

If you didn't see the whole thing then you missed the best parts.

Just spent an hour in a 430 on a wet track 2 weeks ago. Made me appreciate my carrera 4. I have to admit it would be awesom if it were dry.

good eye. But Gangnam doesn't really work so well with papa paparazzi.

The funny thing about this video is that if you signed up for a pricey day at the Porsche Driving School they'd put you in the same fully automatic set up.
So bring your grande Starbucks and your iphone loaded with all your favorite tunes. two hands on the wheel are suggested but only one is required.
