Not sure about the car just coming back from repairs.
I am with you. Every single one I've ever driven or ridden in is a scary experience. Still, in the hands of someone who knows 911's, they are deadly quick. However, I am comfortable to admire at a distance...

I had heard about that Accident, I was there the Monday after that. I thought the driver was a fairly competent driver and was actually scheduled to instruct at the event I was at, but I though someone also said that he had just gotten the car back form being repaired.
The class room theme for the two days was no lifting in 4

PHOTOS: Dramatic Porsche GT3 Wreck at Summit Point
Normally, I do not like to post images of cars being squished, but the photography was just AMAZING. Talk about timing.
Click PCA event at Summit Point and then GT3 crash.
I would post a direct link, but the web site won't let me and the images are copyrighted.
Both driver and instructor were not injured.
The crash took place on the turn 4-5 complex at Summit Point Main. This section of the track, known as "the chute", is a down hill off camber run where speeds approach 110 MPH - even in lower HP cars.
Crash took place at the PCA event 2 weeks ago.
