Would you do this?

Top Speed, No Tickets By Greg Brown of MSN autos
According to this article, there is a company called Supercar Life, which will allow you to ride in the 5 cars shown above (Aston Martin DB9, Porsche 911 Turbo, Mercedes CLK63 AMG Black Series, Lamborghini Gallardo and Ferrari F430) for just under $5,000. This price includes the professional training and high speed driving personalized to meet your comfort level, along with "a fully catered breakfast and lunch, a cocktail reception the night before the event, a photo of you and your favorite car, an in-car DVD of you driving each car, a gift bag with Supercar Life gear, and a glass of champagne to share with your fellow drivers at the end of the day." (I got a kick out of the last sentence: "The gallons of fuel you burn over the course of your many laps are free." Dear Mr. Brown, Free? I don't think so. I think the gas is part of the $5000 price tag. But nice try. Love, Heather)
So, here's the question(s): Would you do this? Is your need for speed worth $5000? Do you think this is a bargain? And, how much is their insurance?!?
