    Dave and Gnil @ Paul Richard-Le Castellet

    Dave and I just spend a day driving on Paul Richard ( Le Castellet ) during one of the Swiss Porsche Cup week end race .  There are a few different categories, and also open driving sessions to non racers . 

    It is a pretty nice setting as the athmospher is more special then during classic open pit lane events due to the races going on, the presence of all the teams, and all the main Swiss Porsche dealers are present and nurture their clients and cars . 

    It was interesting to see now how many successful the GT4 Clubsport are , as they were 22 of them .  I was told that after the initial '' limited production '' run , Porsche  opened the tap, and anyone who wants one can get one .  Judging by the success of that format, it could well take over the Cup championship . 

    Here are just random photos from the event , including a few of my car , Dave's ,  a nice 918 that was well used ( I had him a few times passing me )  , GT4 clubsports, Cup's , and some more rarities  .

    ( for bigger sizes, click on the photo )

    Re: Dave and Gnil @ Paul Richard-Le Castellet

    Just popped down to the garage to see how my G's compared with yours indecision

    Seems you've got me on the brakes and accelerator (is the non-RS really that slow?? broken heart) but I've got you in the corners!

    IMG_1429.JPG

    Worse news was this: I discovered a stone chip I picked up on the highway spread overnight into a 30cm crack laugh  Need to get the car into the dealer ASAP to get it done before Mugello.  On the plus side this gives me an excuse to get some different geometry..

    I will need to take my RS faster around the corners !! but races are won in the braking zone  smiley

    Sorry to hear about your window crack . Insurance will fully cover . And good you will get that speedy alignment indecision

    Re: Dave and Gnil @ Paul Richard-Le Castellet

    That 918 looks stunning in orange. Never liked the silver on it, but now in orange or guards red it must be very nice and maybe adding some dark grey or black contrast accents.


    Re: Dave and Gnil @ Paul Richard-Le Castellet

    Looks like you guys had a blast kiss Thanks for sharing the photos. It must be nice to enjoy a full day of only Porsche cars at the track! Can't wait to be back on the track again. It's been so long.

    Thanks ..... next time I'll try to make less photos but more stylish ones Smiley

    The color on car 19 was a wrap probably . These cars are always white and then covered in different wraps . I must say, that whole team looked so cool with the bright colors . They had ' sparkles ' in that color which made it luminous .

    It's a race event, sponsored by those companies. They make it a condition of entry to put them on. We just happen to be in the free driving / practice sessions.

    Looks like big fun. Would love to drive Le Castellet once as it is a track where you really can push to or over the limit as it has big run-off areas.

    Should go! Was a great track - fast and very technical. Some tricky stuff where it's difficult to judge where the fast lines are. One really fast corner where you need big cojones. Great fun! On top of that it's a very pleasant facility with good hotels and restaurants near by. Just a loooooong drive from Zürich.
