Rocky Mountain Driving Experience

7:40 - arrived and registered. Appears to be 20+ other reviewers and journalists here. Lots of shiny cars just waiting for us to drive the bejesus out of them.

8:09 - leaving for May Farms in an Audi A3 TDI

9:00 - eating breakfast at May Farms. A3 left me a touch cold. Not worth 20k more than a 5-door Golf.

10:15 - at High Plains Raceway. Got here in a 556hp CTS-V. So, I'm in a good mood. We get to drive it, the Corvette GS, the Viper ACR, as well as a bunch of other fun stuff soon.

10:45 - just did my first 3 laps ever on a real track. The instructor was very helpful and the Suzuki Kizashi was a willing participant, but I'm taking a quick breather before trying again.

1:45 - At lunch at May Farms after spending some time driving both the Mercedes E350 cabrio and a Camaro SS. Next up, driving to CO Offroad Extreme.

8:15 - leaving after the wrap-up dinner. Got to ride in several hot-laps on the off-road rally track that were an absolute blast and drove to 2011 Volvo C70 convertible back to where it all started this morning. All was a complete blast. Expect short-take reviews soon on the vehicles I drove today.
