Cool start-up.
Very inventive way to get into this rapid-fire rhythm track. Nice little licks here and there and throughout from various instruments. Not really a tune here; more of a "feel" that is palpable. I haven't seen anything beyond Disney's CARS I, but I think THIS track would fit in beautifully in that movie. I love the speeding car rumbling through now and again just to let us know it's still there. This is such a great, energetic track. Perfect for the movies. ("Find that man an agent!") Your sense of balance in the mix is perfect, too, as I would have expected it to be. Nice work all around.

Soundtrack
I'm working on the video shot that day. This is the soundtrack so far. As background, it doesn't need a strong melody IMHO. The big disappointment was wind noise. Even at 60 MPH in low gear it almost drowned out the engine. And windscreens don't work at all at 140 MPH. Maybe miniature mics inside my helmet?

Ride
This definitely conveys the sense of speed. (I've only gone to watch at the CotA; must be a thrill to actually ride there.)

Great use of a mix of guitars, synths, and all.

It was a bucket list thing.
At 74, I was the oldest guy there (and it was 80% guys) but despite having not set wheel on a race track for 20+ years, I wasn't the slowest.

Love the upbeat, I can almost imaging racing through traffic. Nice tune, enjoyed.

Terrific!
If you were looking for the proper musical counterpoint to virtually any 1980’s-or-so “motorcycle feel-good theme,” this song would be an excellent candidate.   It definitely fits within the genre, and it develops new musical themes throughout the piece in an excellent and creative way.   Well done, my friend!   Ride On!
