Holy cow man......First the Bentley and now the Ferrari F430. Very few people get to drive a Ferrari ever in their lifetime. Congratulations, Mr. Tifosi.

And the question everyone wants answered : HOW?

Congrats Sir.

You lucky lucky man!! How on earth did you get you hands on a Ferrari? Many Congrats.

I have a feeling I won't be able to drive it even if I get an opportunity somehow. I'll be too weak in the knees...

Dippy you lucky dog. Must have been a hair raising experience. BTW your report is waay to brief. We need to know every minute and every second of your experience. Videos would be nice too.

@Gordon he was in RACE mode ..
The Manettino has five settings; ‘Ice’ is for low-grip situations where increased CST input is needed. In this situation, the system prohibits the use of paddle-changes. ‘Normal’ is exactly that with damping set to comfort mode. ‘Sport’ is for maximum performance on the road and offers a good compromise between stability and oomph. The suspension becomes firmer and the CST allows a bit of leeway before intervening. Then there’s ‘Race’ for track use, a facility which unfortunately, I didn’t have access to. In this case the CST input is kept to a minimum and the gear-shifts are faster than the normal 150 milliseconds.
Finally, the ‘CST ' selection is used in conjunction with the Launch Control (LC) button unless you live in the USA, where it is not available. Again, only for use on a track, the dial is held in the CST position for three seconds and the LC button is pressed. You then put your foot on the brake and rev the engine to 5,000rpm before releasing the brake. Madness! With the CST off, the only aids left are ABS with EBD and a firm grip on the steering wheel.

see see
