Video from today
« on: July 14, 2008, 02:22:02 AM »
This was the start of our race today from my in-car camera...I thought some might enjoy ;) It's a 90MB .asf mpeg-4 format video.

A little background...the black Porsche on the left and I were the two fastest in the Lightning group this weekend.  On Saturday he and I had a great battle.  So for today, we asked to be put at the back of our starting group which included some Spec Miatas and a Honda Challenge car so that we could have a little more challenge than just banging on one another for 35 minutes.  Needless to say, it was a lot of fun and a huge rush!

Enjoy!

 ;D  I honestly thought we'd have a harder time contending with the traffic, that it would give us an opportunity to try and pass in other sections of the track.  But, yah, horsepower is fun  :D

were you in the same class as them?  Does not seem like a challenge when you pass all of them in the first 15 seconds, haha.

No, the black Porsche 911 on the left, and the blue and white 911 in front of me and I were in GTS-3.  The other two classes present were Spec Miata and Honda Challenge.  What you don't see is the 944 pack on the back straight waiting on the second green flag.  We were in the Lightning run group, versus the Thunder race group which includes the American manufacture series which ran at different times.
