Ferrari 599XX

Although I'm not a big fan of Ferrari, I enjoyed this video of the 599XX breaking the lap record for production-derived sports cars at the Nurburgring Nordschleife. As this article notes, "production-derived" is seriously stretching the term for the 599XX, which, apart from name and looks, has very little in common in with the 599. Still, watching the 599XX blast around the 20km track is worth the 7 minutes it takes to complete the lap.

These long tracks are awesome and I wish Formula 1 had one on the calender. Unfortunately, long circuits do not make for good television coverage, which is the primary business of F1 these days. It's a shame really.
