    Ferrari Experience Day and Leon FR - PICS NOW ADDED

    Went for my Ferrari Experience day on Saturday - was brilliant - drove a 355 spider for 4 laps and then got taken out for a high speed run for 2 laps in a 360 Modena - was speechless.

    It was @ Heyford Park in Oxfordshire which is a disused RAF base.

    Seems like it is also a hiding place for car that are about be released - as I saw a how load of the soon to be released Seat Leon FR which makes its UK debut @ the British motor show this week. Strangely they were all TDI's

    anyway - got a few pics of the day and the Leon's all parked up - now added

    If the next wave of Leons are the same as the first then I think all FRs will be diesel with the 'R' being the petrol counterpart.

    Sounds ike a great day though, I did a 355 one a few years ago. Was fantastic and it got even better when I got to do 6 laps in a formula renault.
