    Re: Best motoring: CSL-Gallardo-360 Modena....

    Gotta luv that NSX-R! To go head to head like that with the Lambos speaks volumes for that car's handling dynamics, as it is WAY down on power compared to the Gallardo and Murcielago. I want one.

    Re: Best motoring: CSL-Gallardo-360 Modena....

    The 911 was automatic - Not X50 .. My friend just bought that dvd .. i was surprised, sorda confused why they had that NSX in this Euro Battle. But proved me wrong for the first two laps - No clue why they didnt get a manual for the porsche though ..

    A huge amount of the NSX's good position was the driver - he is always going harakiri-style and he is always driving the Hondas in the comparisons. Is he employed by them??

    Re: Best motoring: CSL-Gallardo-360 Modena....

    I wrote about Kurosawa Motoharu in this board sometime ago...
    So, here it goes again.
    He is THE ONE of best and most respected racing driver Japan has in terms of his ability to interpret car's handling charteristics and tires. After retiring from his GT racing days in 60~70s, he works for many different car manufacturers and tire companies. Due to his well earned respect from Porsche's Bridgestone Tire development at the Nurburgring, the words are that Weissach is sending him an extra Carrera GT over the quota assigned to Japanese market.

    You will see his Carrera GT competing in one of these Best Motoring series in the near future as promised by the Gan San (the wise one).

    So he is not only driving Hondas...

    If this turns out to be true I am massively looking forward to that!

    Jean, I suppose you are of French origin?

    Greetings!

    Re: Best motoring: CSL-Gallardo-360 Modena....

    I have the entire August 2004 DVD on my pc (650mb). It contains a race between GT3 ClubSport, Gallardo, NSX-R, 360M, 360CS, and I think M3 CSL. It also has a test lap of this guy you speak of and his CGT. Pretty quick lap but not really fast. He also nearly loses it in one corner! Is he that slightly chubby and small guy?

    Re: Best motoring: CSL-Gallardo-360 Modena....

    yea thats him - the oldest guy on the track

    Re: Best motoring: CSL-Gallardo-360 Modena....

    Ferdie,
    I'm Korean, althogh I've lived in Firenze, London, and Paris for a few years in my youth. Unfortunately, I was in Paris less than a year and regret not being successful in learning how to speak French.

    I am looking forward to the super battle between the Kurosawa's CGT and an Enzo (perhaps it's less hard to find a Japanese owner who is willing to provide one). Given that both F50 and F40 have already featured in the Best Motoring series, this Japanese Video has the highest probability to do a direct track comparison of these cars in an FIA certified circuit, while all the rest of the magazines in the western civilization try not to upset the Italian company.

    Does the August DVD have Kurosawa doing a lap in his CGT? I'm not sure what lap time you are coparing to when you say "not really fast," but do not be deceived by his smooth driving (what he is really famous for) with the actual speed of the lap. Kurosawa might still be learning the car or breaking it in, but as far as I know, not many Japanese racing driver (including single-seaters) can drive a GT car around a track faster than him.

    Re: Best motoring: CSL-Gallardo-360 Modena....

    Oh, don't get me wrong, I am not making one negative comment regarding their driving, they're all awesome. What I meant was, I think he was merely breaking the car in, I think he went around in mostly 3rd and 4th. After all, its a very expensive car, unlike their beaten-to-death NSX.

    Re: Best motoring: CSL-Gallardo-360 Modena....

    I found one funny thing that NSX always finish at the 1st 3 place in "Best Motoring".

    Re: Best motoring: CSL-Gallardo-360 Modena....

    I guess it has a lot to do with the track configuration as well as NSX-R's gear ratio, tyre compounds, and suspension set-ups. Japanese cars in these videos had the advantage of being developed for optimal set-ups at their home tracks.
