I can't resist. The quality of these shots are just amazing. The photographer is Anil Bouri. He took these Autobahn Monday.

As suggested by a member here, I am posting two videos from different tracks. I am running on street tires.

First is from last weekend in Sebring:

The second is from Palm Beach:

I was not pushing it in Palm Beach, rather trying to go smooth. Enjoy

Couple of shots from Autobahn yesterday..including the tow of shame (my car) past all the cars I sidelined during the last session..Hope it just a coolant hose - tons of smoke - no coolant in the tank - temp on the dash was never above 190-195 so hopefully its nothing serious.

One of the highlights was Porsche North America had 2 Boxster Spyders there driven by 2 drivers from Porsche Sport Driving School (Cass Whitehead was the driver I drove with I believe). OMG can these guys drive - makes me really realize I have a long, long, long way to go....The speed these guys carry in the corner and the ability to control everything with the throttle was unreal.....

Car problems were just a coolant fitting(?) less the 400. In addition, I had them replace the hoses with the updated and 997tt hoses ([email protected] told me to do this 6 months ago for prevention - said the 996 ones are a known weak link).

One more pic from the other day that is so so (driver is Cass Whitehead)

Summit Point DE - July 2010

I posted this over in the forum as well...

I drove out to Summit Point (West Virginia) for a DE with PCA Potomac this past weekend. It was hot, but a very fun group. Got to hang out with Landjet. I took the video below during the instructor run Saturday morning. It was my first time at the track, and I didn't want to push hard offline into the corners, so I was ok following these guys around. At least for a little while.

Hi, Josh,

Yes, I met Mike. He came over to find me after the session in the video to give me some suspension advice. When I went under the car to try to implement it, I found that my RF inner CV joint had discharged about all of its contents, so I packed up and took it home.

That car is beautiful.

I had a great time. It's a fun track. This was my first time there, but between getting a ride in the Churches' yellow Ruf turbo and doing the mentoring for an instructor candidate, I was able to learn the line pretty quickly.

Jon

Now that is something you don't see everyday. Amazing....humor me, the 996 RGT were narrow body cars. This looks like it has the enhancments of 997 RGT (fenders - wing) - I have just never seem that on a 996..That is one beautiful car.

Glad you enjoyed the track. Sorry about the CV.

You mean this Church's car???



This car is so awesome...I bet the ride was fun!

Josh
