He once taught a german shepherd how to bark in Spanish.
When he drives a car off the lot it's price increases.
He once won the Tour-de-France but was disqualified for using a unicycle.

I don't always drive a sports car, but when I do it's a Porsche. Stay fast my friends.

If it weren't for the dang license plate shape and the colored Porsche wheel centers, I could pretend that was me out there! Screw it! I'm pretending!!

If you used the track precision app, I feel an analysis of your laptimes coming up by a certain forum member

If in doubt...flat out

Great video. I liked watching your hands working the steering wheel.


I have to ask a question about hand technique. Back in the old days I worked corners at SCCA races, but never drove because it was beyond my upstart financial means. Back then the instructors used to tell novice drivers not to hold the wheel with your thumbs on the inside of the wheel. The reason was that if something in the suspension broke or you lost a tire or hit a rock thrown up by another car, the wheel could whip around and the spokes could break your thumbs. Of course this was back when what we call vintage cars were still new.


So I figured the two bulges on the inside of my wheel were there as a gripping surface. But I haven't been around racing for a long time and don't know if this rule is still being taught. Yes? No? Just curious.

Jim, on my second Porsche. The first was a 912 in a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.
