Video - Harassing a Porsche!

A bit of video from my 2nd track event - at Rockingham Raceway again (decided I couldn't wait for the next one - help me I'm addicted ).

Got to run in yellow group this time, so everyone was a bit faster. I kept waiting for a point-by from the Porsche, but I guess he figured since he could pull away on the front straight...
Listen for the bang at around 6:30 - tracked out a little too far and caught the curb. The car was fine.

Didn't catch up with the driver - I was going to joke about a point-by but wasn't sure they'd take it the right way.

Looking back at the video and checking my speedo needle, I was topping out at around 115 on the back straight, and 60-70ish on the two infield straights.

The guy in the Porsche should be ashamed of himself.

Next time give him the chrome horn.

Do you know the difference between a Porsche and a Porcupine ???

With a Porcupine, the PRICKS are on the outside...

That's awesome!!! Makes me want to race. Did you have to have all that ballast in the passenger seat? That had to hurt acceleration out of the corners.
