Road Atlanta is one of the classic old-school American road courses. It’s bumpy, undulating, fast, and utterly brilliant.
Ferrari’s Corse Clienti programme was there recently, and former F1 driver and Ferrari tester Marc Gene headed out onto the track in the title-winning F2003GA. The previous track record was a 1:06.242, set by Stephane Sarrazin in a Peugeot LMP1 car back in 2008. Gene didn’t just beat it, he absolutely destroyed it, lopping off a solid five seconds to set a 1:01.2. It’s pretty mega to watch – and listen to!
