    Haven't touch the 918. Was told it is actually chocolate. And if we wish to bring it back home, the hotel has a box for it. Haha

    Finally had the chance to take my own 918 out on a track today.

    Think I properly exercised the car today:

    IMG_9616.JPG

    IMG_9615.JPG

    It was a a charity event to raise money for breast cancer, they had initially arranged a Shelby GT500, a Huracan, a Corvette Z06, a McLaren 570S, and a .2 C4S to be hot laps cars, seat time sold to raise money, think it was like $50 a ride. An hour was allocated but the selling stopped with about 20 mins to go. To add some excitement, I offered up my 918 and got Kees Nierop to do the hot laps, it was sold for $500 a ride and got 4 takers to fill up the last 20 mins. All for a good cause.

    It wasn't even using LC. 

    But I believed I did a 1.06g on the RS before at 4 degree celsius before, but that one was on LC.

    And my personal best on the 918 was a 1.2g using LC. Not on a drag strip.

    Just for comparison, my old 962 race car with H. J. Stuck at the controls would do 0.8g forward coming out of the International Horseshoe corner at Daytona.  Second gear ... I think.

    Some fresh pictures from the photographer off my track day:

    This pesky RS is on my tail all day. Granted, it was driven by someone who is much more capable than me on skills.

    The 918 is at where it belongs:

    trackday for charity 2016_241.JPG

    trackday for charity 2016_446.JPG

    It has like maybe an inch of body roll in the corners, if that much.

    The next 2 is driven by Kees Nierop, on our charity auction hot laps in my car.

    And yes, the white sticker on my fender is a shameless plug for my track club, Area 27, which is opening this September. Our race school has just been certified by FIA. 

     

    The car is really happiest when it is unleashed on a track that's for sure. I loved it when I can unleashed my own car on a track, let it exercise, but that joy was nothing compared with other people's reactions, as in they can't believe there is actually someone who would track their 918; their reaction to the sound of the exhaust as it blast down the main straight; or the people who bid and got the hot laps in the car and came out with a big smile.

    That last part, is my main point of hypercar ownership, to make as many people happy as I can. The 918 is Porsche's masterpiece, while I own it, I also want as many people to enjoy it with me as possible, I left the car unlocked at the paddock, anyone who walks by I offered up the car for them to sit in and take photographs. Most are shocked about the offer, but none declined.

    I love those live shots . Thanks .  But the track looks more like a go-cart place Smiley  , I bet you can't wait for are27 !

    On another scale I also like to make people happy with my RS  and share it . I have taken many '' friends '' for drives in it and each time I let them drive it . Often they could not believe I would let them take the wheel !  They have been so happy after .  Nearly all of them will never ever have such a car , not drive one, and only have dreamed about them , making it available to them is such a small thing for me, but a life time memory for them . Smiley

    You're a great person, Nick. This is how I got to drive some wonderful cars I would never be able to afford (Bugatti Veyron, LaFerrari, etc.) because some owners are very generous and happy to share. Of course they do not let anyone drive these cars but still, I cannot say I was/am a close friend and I really enjoyed it. Kudos to you and to people like you who love cars and love to share their experiences. I mean it. Smiley  Smiley

    When I was in Vancouver I experienced your kindness and generosity first-hand. It sure made my day and was one of the many highlights of my trip.
    Don't think that these are small acts; they have a large positive effect and I am proud of the people here on Rennteam who not only love their cars, but also love sharing them with all those out there. Smiley

    Porsche, separates Le Mans from Le Boys


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    I have driven the Veyron Vitesse and ridden in a LaFerrari and a 918. From those experiences, I can tell you that they're vastly different cars with different goals in mind. The Vitesse is all about straightaway speed on the top end. It felt "heavy" on the corners whereas the LaFerrari/918 could just dance around those very same corners with ease. I would say that the ride quality between the three, the Vitesse felt the most compliant followed by the 918 and the LaFerrari. I have yet to drive or ride in the P1 but I have sat in all three cars and the P1 felt the most comfortable in terms of how it fit around me as a person. I will go on to say that the Vitesse felt the most opulent out of them all. 


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Nice one Nick.

    As I keep telling my kids - good humans share their toys. Same idea here, just on a bigger scale    wink
