In sunny south Florida we usually do not have to worry about that. However, a Ferrari is about corners, not just straight line acceleration, so no owner is going to feel DONE IN by you in a quick acceleration run. Get them on the track instead.
In the Passing Porsche's video, a guy black flagged us all when his F430 dropped it's rear diffuser on Homestead's road course. However, in 6 other sessions, only once did he catch up to me after 13 laps, and then the session ended before he could get close enough to pass. He was in the "expierence" group above mine.
Sure, I killed a brand new $1,000 brake job, but damn, it was worth it!
A friend overheard an Audi R8 V10 owner telling a Gallardo SuperLeggera owner at a recent event "seriously, do not make fun of the fat dude or the little red Mercedes..."
Now if I can just get these rich bastards to cough up some sponsorship money.... ;-)
