I LOVE Porsche's part 2

One Camaro ZL1 and 21 Porsches. Reminds me of the childhood song 'one of these things is not like the others'.

In the interest of fairness, I am adding a wonderful run with Pcars. These guys were not just extremely fast but also complete gentlemen. It's a capable group that you would least expect a point-by (not required) yet every pass made was granted.

I'll be honest, I went into the day thinking I wouldn't have anyone to play with. Holy crap was I wrong. I worked my ass off getting to the front and, I made plenty of mistakes doing it (as you'll see at 8:50 & 12:50 on the EXACT same corner). This was not a day to bring street tires!

I joke about the attitudes of Porsche Wallet Pros but I was honored to run with this group. but the camaro is faster hehehe

Thanks for an entertaining video on this dreary morning. It looks like you enjoy chasing the rabbit like I do. Thunderhill looks like a lot of fun. I can't wait to try it next season. Great driving Rob!

Thank you! You gotta let me know when you're planning your trip up. We have a group of forum guys in the area and its a blast driving together.

I am entertained... Nice driving.

The P car rear engine set up sure doesn't like that down hill off camber. You gained ground there every lap.

Thanks guys. I really do have a little too much pride in this 'merican car. Just love it. Now I have a serious dilemma which I will air out for advice in the ZL1 threads.

Pin: Not practical. haha. On a 20-25 minute session on this track I go through about 1/2 tank. It's a little more bearable at places like Sears Point, err I mean Infineon, err, I mean Sonoma Raceway and MRLS as I burn through about 7 gallons per session there. The two straights on this track are brutal. Buttonwillow is even worse than T'hill!

Yes. The fuel burn rate is crazy. The more you enjoy the great sounds the sooner you’re leaving the track for fuel. I highly recommend leaving the track when you see the low fuel light. Do not attempt just another couple of laps. Trust me..I know. I’ve held up traffic limping to the exit.

I would not wait for the light. That would not be advisable at Thunderhill or BW13 with this cars appetite. Guys I run with have run empty on the 5mile trying to get one more lap with the light. Some groups I drive with charge you for the tow if you run it dry. And they should. The session ends for everyone with a driver's poor planning (and failing to exit the line). I have a 30 gallon fuel drum with me at every track plus 8 fuel cans. I don't hit the track on less than 1/2 tank. Just don't want to be [I]that [I] guy.
