OMG so much fun!! I drove five different AMG cars including the SLS and the thing that struck me was how equal in performance they are. Sure the SLS is a beast but the C63 with performance pack felt equally aggressive. I also found the brakes on all cars to be amazing. There was an acceleration exercise that ended in heavy braking and even after repeated stops the brakes on all the cars held up beautifully.
All in all it was a great day and the instructors were really nice for sure.
Have fun on Sunday

discoduck Awesome!! How much driving time did you get?
I'd say about 2 hours

Do you remember exactly what cars were there?

They had at least 12 cars but we didn't use them all as there were only 6 of us.

Ahhhhhhhh so excited!!! How much time did you get with the SLS?
20 minutes or so I drove it through all the exercises except the drag race. For the drag race we all drove the C 63 with and without the performance package
