    Trackday pictures

    I promised you some pics from my latest trackday adventure.
    Well, "adventure" may be a bit exaggerated, but it was loads of fun, partially because it turned out to be almost a Porsche familily picnic

    My own personal highlight was the fact that I lapped the track as fast as a fellow driver managed in his 996 GT3. To his defense I believe he was even more of a beginner than me...and then you might ask yourself why a beginner would wanna start out by buying a GT3, and I'm afraid I don't know.

    But I was still driven i circles by slick-clad Alfas, Locosts and others with either much better drivers or cars with better setup.

    as you will see in the pics, there were both GT3s, GT3RSs, a couple of GT2s, older 993RS and a nice Beemer M3CLS.
    Of all of those the silver GT2 was king. Man, that is one sick car!
    I believe I was told it had something like 550-600 BHP and it sounded simply AMAZING!
    I'll see if I can post a link to a few filmclips I have, so you can listen to it. Awesome!

    Ok, time for pics.

    Re: Trackday pictures

    Lets start off nice and easy.
    As you can see, trackdays are for everyone.
    I think its totally cool that someone wants to track their SAAB.
    Better than having a GT3 or CGT that never sees the track.

    Here's the Rennteam Guru in the paddock. Look at that masculine posture, the suave looks and the manly presence...I can see why the women want my chiseled hardbody and all the men want my success and manlihood.
    Huh-aargh!

    BTW, I had to blur my face so y'all can live with yourselves.
    Had you seen my face, many of you would probably have had a tough time finding a meaning with your lives...after having seen what only very few men ever obtain, and knowing it is beyond your reach, you would have felt inferior, useless and obsolete.
    Because I am such a generous man, I wanted to spare you that agony.
    Nono! It's the least I can do. You can thank me later...

    Here's some mixed candy...
    First a Honda Civic. Sounded just great at 8500 rpms...
    Whaaaaaaaaaaaah!

    Re: Trackday pictures

    An old GT-something. You tell me what it is...
    I had the luck of getting cornered by the owner's brother, who kept talking about his brother, his brother...and his brother non-stop.
    Apparently his brother had built or bought this old thing and gotten somthing like 380 bhp from it.
    They tracked it for 3-4 laps, and the loudmouth who had keept telling me how many P's he had and how fast they were drove exactly how many laps do you think? Yes: zero!
    D'oh!
    I'm amazed these people still exist.

    GT3 versus ......

    Re: Trackday pictures

    The silver monster GT2 !!!!!
    WHooooooosh!

    Re: Trackday pictures

    Check that ride height...yikes!

    Re: Trackday pictures

    He often came out sideways into the long straight.
    (Not this pic)
    I believe that was the only driver who did so of them all...

    Re: Trackday pictures

    The wheels...

    Re: Trackday pictures

    The tires...semislicks that are seriously fast.

    Re: Trackday pictures

    Another GT2

    Re: Trackday pictures

    Same...

    Re: Trackday pictures

    Third one...

    Re: Trackday pictures

    Another monster. The M3csl!
    What a sound!!!!!! All Beemers sound alike, not the same at all - but alike.
    They all have some high-pitched whine when they pass you on the straight. Very cool indeed.

    Re: Trackday pictures

    Eating most of the others...even tho nobody was racing the car was clearly faster than most.

    Re: Trackday pictures

    The GT2 wing. Is it me, or is it just the most butt-ugly thing anyone has ever attached to a car??

    Re: Trackday pictures

    Doc Pippy showing how to drive....sensibly..

    Re: Trackday pictures

    Going for the track record...

    Re: Trackday pictures

    "Slowest Porsche to ever hit this track 2005".
    And I got a cup, too!

    Btw here I am chasing a GT3...
    I could see he was slow, so I eased off the throttle and let him lap me a few times, you know, to make him feel good about himself...

    Re: Trackday pictures

    The GT2 eating up a GT3RS

    Re: Trackday pictures

    The GT3 RS.
    I have a love-hate relationship with that color-combo, but you gotta admit its a classic!

    Re: Trackday pictures

    There was a nice swedish guy in a red Vette.
    He was there for the first time and took it very slowly, but seemed to love every minute of it.
    There's just something about a vette. It will never be a sportscar IMO, but a very cool cruiser it is.
    It's the GT2 overtaking it, in case u were wondering

    Re: Trackday pictures

    Another 986-owner having fun

    Re: Trackday pictures

    And I'll end this with the best end I could find: The back of the GT3.

    And lastly: If you havent aleady, PLEASE do yourself a favour and take your Porsche (and other cars for that matter) to a track.
    You will have NO clue what great car you own before you've had a chance of trying it out in a challenging but safe environment.

    Be safe and have fun!!!
