We’re fully aware of how great the temptation must be to boil over with jealousy watching the following video, in which two friends – one with a Porsche 918, and one with a Ferrari LaFerrari – take their cars to the Spa-Francorchamps road course in Belgium to have a bit of fun.
But let’s be honest; if you had the means, you’d do the very same.
Neither of the well-off car enthusiasts in this video is a professional driver by any means; that much becomes obvious as soon as the owner of the Ferrari LaFerrari bounces off the rev-limiter the first of several times. But in the two drivers’ defense, according to the video’s publisher, half of the track was damp with rain, and Spa-Francorchamps is among the most tricky road courses ever devised.
Still, it would be foolish to necessarily derive an opinion of either car simply from their respective performances in the video. It’s just two very lucky, very wealthy, supercar owners out for a spin on a world class road course.
