Japs Vs. Krauts: Battle for FTD

I truly hope that everybody gets my sense of humor...

Had a great day of racing with the Porsche Club of America. Some of their cars are so sexy they look like works of art. I admit to slight droolage.

Of course, once the racing started none of that kept me from showing them the might of the rotary. This course was very rough, and definitely "geared" toward the high horsepower cars. Just look at the length of that straight! I was topping out 3rd gear!

Anyway, I threw together a funny (I think, but of course I've been out in the sun all day) video of today's events. I hope you enjoy.

Thanks man. It's funny because I spent the first heat not even thinking about comparing my times to Porsches, simply assuming that with all their power and that long straight they'd stomp me. But during the break everyone was looking my car over kinda scratching their heads, and somebody mentioned that I was second fastest so far, with only the M3 beating me.

For the second heat I payed a lot more attention and found another second out on the course. Nobody was more shocked than me at the final results. I just wish I knew how I did it. lol.
