Yes. I think that Skip Barber owns the track.

Official pictures and video (with me getting off the track) will follow.

We did get special permission to put the Spyker on the track at lunch time and did a number of laps with me in the passenger seat, and the instructor driving.

He did not even get close to getting the C8 off the track, but then again, he probably has thousands of laps on this track.

That must have been an unique experience! Looking forward to the pics&vids.

Did his driving do anything to increase your (already high) impression of the/your Spyker? Did he push the car to its limits?

BTW, was else was there, on the track I mean?
