Wow! that is one dream experience...

Are there any issues around needing driving licences etc for the purpose of insurance or as it is a track experience, is it not needed at all?

The website specifies that you need a full valid drivers license. All of us had our international licenses made ( as we needed them in Germany ) but they didnt check our licenses at the time of registration though..

Frick! You lucky lucky man!

You had a smile plastered on your face throughout the drive. I doubt it has come off even now. Seriously lucky!

Great report bro! I am definitely doing this before I die.

Woooowwwwww.... the Super Veloce, man you've lived your lifetime and should be immortalised here. Thats one experience which you'll remember in all your reincarnations for centuries to come.
Awesome writeup, I was so engrossed that I felt I am reading a TG transcript from Jezza the great, although Hammond TD this beast. And more importantly, you've given me a mission to accomplish before appocalypse. I know thats the machine which can save me when the ultimate calamity occurs

Yes the smile is still on my face. I now love getting into discussions with people where someone says "Dude, have you driven the new ( whatever car )...its awesome!'' and I reply '' Dude have you driven an LP670? " hahahah..

Awesome, you are indeed lucky to have got time with Tiff. I thought the dude talks strangely for the camera in fifth gear, he was talking to you the same way. I am sure he had lots of tips off camera

Now you can enjoy all the conversations and then end it with the bombshell thats taming the beast LP670 SV.

Again awesome.

WOW!!
You are one kucky guy. I am sure driving the Lamborgini yourself would be the best part of the experience for you.
But if i was in your place I would have liked the BMW M3 experience more simply because it was driven to the limit. I think the car reached 140 miles and the engine running at 7000+ rpm. Thatsthe thing to die for
Just today i was watching sanjeev of Star sports having a ride of his life in a 3 seater F1 Arrows of 1998 and now i read about your experience and watch the M3 video

Driving the Lamborghini was awesome. Its one of those cars that most of us only have scale models and posters of. The drive with Tiff Needell was mind blowing too. I really did not know that an M3 could be pushed to such limits and that it handles so brilliantly. But driving the Formula Renault was the best part of the experience. It really makes you feel like an F1 driver.

The roar of that V12 is simply astounding! Words cannot describe the joy, ecstacy, excitement, fear and a whole lot of other emotions running through my mind at that time!
I would have just cried... then and there. To be frank, my eyes became wet while reading this part.

Man, what an experience you had. I hope someday I'll be able to drive a supercar.

Your are really a lucky man to enjoy LP670,F3 and a ride with Tiff M3 on a same day which means you are very lucky that only few persons would have this experience in the world.you are now 1 in 1000 or may be 1 or 100000. Great write up!
