Do you get paid for click-throughs to the GT3 Forum? Because all three of your threads just cross-link there, and it smells vaguely of watercraft...

Last summer, my best friend and I did that in Suzuki Swifts. It felt like we were going every bit as fast!

That was a great race. I remember watching it live streaming...

Those cars are waaay too fast to run without it closed. Did you note the speed differential and the seemingly wanton disregard for the yellow flags?

I think I am becoming James May. The older I get the less impressed I am with cars that claim to be good at the ring.

That was some great driving from Marc Lieb. His car just didn't have the power in the straights. Much smoother than the other driver. Quite a close battle!

I think they were being careful enough under yellows but quite a few people in mere-mortal-mobiles had to endure some pants-E36 M3ting passes...particularly a red & white Civic just before the 6min mark and a black Swift at 7:35 I'm not gonna lie, if that was me, some poo might have come out.

Also check the 1-off/2-off driving from 8:50 to 9:10...this is just an open track day right?

No. This was during an ADAC race.

+1 He was much smoother. I really thought he was gunna come out on top! Either way, an incredible display of skill.
