Yeah, but everybody looks bad in a track suit and helmet, you just look like a rich douche in the Lambo.

I looked like a stormtrooper in the leathers I tried, especially if I threw on my white (SA) helmet.

The Lambo needs to be lowered... Looks like a rally car with that much clearance. Probably the only reason I don't have one.

No doubt, but bikes will always be more fun. Tighter cornering, ability to wheelie, endo, and whatever jackassedry exists.

That depends on what's fun for the person. The lateral G a proper racecar provides is something I just haven't felt elsewhere. Other activities have acceleration or braking Gs, positive or negative Gs vertically, but that "my body stays upright and is pushed sideways" is something... different. Street cars used on track tend to be able to get around 1.5 to 1.8 lateral G, sustained in a sweeper. But racecars can do from around that 1.5 to 4.5+ lateral G.

It's all about what a particular person finds fun.
