Me (in blue), and my instructor in the Jaguar F-Type

In Part 1, I shared a bunch of pictures and tried to put into words how much fun it was to slog a bunch of Land Rover vehicles over hills, into mud, ruts, and sand.  In Part 2, I’ll be attempting the same thing, only on the Jaguar side, where I actually got to drive a Jaguar F-Type S Convertible around Summit Point Motorsports’ Jefferson Circuit.

Jaguar Land Rover Event 2014.06.29 - Me and DVD in F-Type

Me (in blue) and my instructor-for-the-day, who goes by DVD.

Ever since the movie The Bucket List came out, everyone’s crafted their own, and I am no exception.  Most of mine are automobile related, as you can imagine.  On the weekend of June 29th, 2014, I got to cross two items off my list; legitimately off-roading, and driving on a race track.  In Part 1, I’ll go through the off-road section of my day with the crew at Summit Point Motorsports Park and Rosenthal Jaguar/Land Rover.  Part 2 will detail my seat time on the track in a Jaguar F-Type S convertible, and wrap up the day’s fun.

With Cadillac releasing coupe and wagon variants of its popular CTS luxury sport sedan, I’ve started to wonder which of BMW’s cars is a better comparison: the 3-Series, which is a bit smaller, but priced similarly, or the 5-Series, which is a bit bigger, but priced about $10,000 higher?  Click past the jump for the tale of the tape and the Reader Poll.
