Road course porn?

Finally!

Putnam Park in Greencastle, Indiana this past Friday. This is the best session I remembered to start the camera for. It's 17 minutes. The fastest lap of the session starts around 13:40 or so.

Car did great, no major problems beyond a shifter cable that decided to give up in the parking lot the night before. Cooked the brakes pretty well, though. Hawk HPS pads aren't enough for stock-sized rotors and this. I'm going to switch to a race pad for my next event.

I'm doing Optima USCA at the Corvette Museum in a couple of weeks. I'll post more then. The videos from that should be even dorkier. I've figured out how to merge Powerlogger output with the Harry's Lap Timer data and overlay it, so the next video should have cool stuff like throttle, boost, and engine RPM.

I got to go back to Putnam this past weekend for the Kentucky Region Porsche Club of America Summer Heat Driver Education event. Very well run event, lots of really nice cars. I had a lot of fun.

And got footage of me passing stuff I had no business being able to pass, enjoy!

Best lap of the day:

Entire third session:

That has got to be a good feeling!
The red Porsche did NOT want to admit defeat, but in the end they all bow down before the almighty GN.
The red car was cool. Not sure of the exact year, but it's one of the monster air-cooled Turbos from the 1980s. It spat and sputtered and tried to stall until he mashed it on the straight, and then the wail it emitted was ungodly and the straight line speed was incredible.
