I was invited to participate in an exclusive Ferrari Track Soiree by Ferrari of Austin. One of the requirements to get my Ferrari F430 out on the track was to have an inspection performed by Ferrari of Austin, which I ultimately failed because there were cracks in my tires – likely caused by driving the summer only tires in the colder temps during the winter. The tires are Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s and are only about 2-3 years old and easily have at least 2k miles left.

Because I’m a moron and didn’t schedule the inspection to happen earlier in the week, I was unable to source new tires in only a matter of hours, and could not drive my car on the track. I still came to the event and had a fun time watching all the Ferraris drive as fast as they could at the Circuit of the Americas. There were 360, F430, 430 Scuderia, 458, 488, Pista, Portifino, and California that all went out on track. Pretty much every modern Ferrari you can think of.
