Nice list of cars, but that price tag is ridiculous IMO. No thanks.

I did the World Class Driving event, and that was $1,500 to drive 5 cars (430 Scuderia, Gallardo Superlegerra, GT-R, Z06 & R8) for half the day on back country roads. If this is for the entire day and is at speed on a road course, that price isn't all that bad. At my event we got up to "go directly to jail" speeds, so doing it on track where the police aren't going to arrest you and you can see around every corner would be a major plus to the enjoyment factor of pushed any of those car around the track.

That Vette should definitely be a ZR1 instead of a Z06.

Too expensive. With the way the market is today you can just save the $3500-$6400 as a down payment to buy at least one (or more) of the cars on that list.

Ferrari F430, 599GTB and Scuderia
Lambo LP 560, Gallardo,

When you say Porsche GT, do you mean the Carrera GT? Cause that one is about double the price of the next most expensive on that list. It just seems out of place against these other sports cars and entry level supercars.

Honestly, the Z06 and Viper should not be on that list. I mean, if you are going to pay $3500 for 1 day of driving...give me some Zonda, Koenigsegg, Ferrari Enzo etc.

I've seen the ads for that! It looks pretty sweet, and a relatively good deal. Would you say it was worth it?

This event appears to be designed for enthusiasts with a "money is no object" point of view. It's clearly out of the question for the vast majority of us. The $1,500 event is just a little out of reach for most of us. If it were $500 to $1,000, I'd be tempted, even though I can't afford it.
