    I need to get in on this. I'll bet Lewis Hamilton wants to drive my MINI.

    I'll provide a free room and food in Lancaster, NY if you want to come up the 13th. We can drive to WG from my house, ~2.5 hours.

    If I wasn't on the opposite end of the country I'd be there. Take pics/vids whoever goes!

    I corrected my earlier post. Intended to type "country". Typing from a smartphone has it's drawbacks.

    I wonder how confused Hamilton will be when he realizes there aren't any paddles for shifting...

    No way is Muffin-top Tony ever fitting in Lewis' real car.

    It will be interesting to see if Tony can figure all the buttons out.

    When this was done the first time around I think the biggest surprise for both drivers were the brakes more than anything else. Jeff Gordon was stopping way before he needed to in the F1 and it was either Montoya or Massa i forgot which that went straight thru the turn wondering when they would start to slow the car down :)

    Yeah, I heard that today. I may re-think going to the track since access is very limited.
