With so many different cars, there were many different sounds to enjoy. The elevations changes really show up well on video. I imagine that this track drives like a rollercoaster.
Race Groups 5 & 6
This video features some of my all-time favorite cars. Turbocharged monsters like the 935 and 962 take to track with modern classics such as the RS Spyder and the sweet sounding 911 GT3 RSR. I loved seeing the handful of 993 RSRs out on track.
Two great season finales. The off-season (next weekend’s Porsche Rennsport Reunion is the last major event of the season at Laguna Seca) will give me a chance to practice and come up with some new ideas for content. I really hope to up my video game for next season. Let me know what you’d like to see and I’ll do my best.
What a race. What a season. Yet again, the championship is decided in the final race. A lot of things went right for IndyCar this season. There were some truly great races and a dramatic championship fight that helped pull TV ratings out of the gutter. After some initial despair, Honda teams were able to get back on relatively even terms with their Chevy counterparts. Even still, a lot of things went wrong this season as well. Inconsistent officiating, excessive caution periods, and the terrible accidents that claimed the life of Justin Wilson and very nearly James Hinchcliffe have cast a shadow on the 2015 season.
Renger van der Zande and Kevin Estre stole the show. I watched race one at home before driving up for race two and the IndyCar race on Sunday. Estre took race one with a forceful, but clean, pass at the bottom of the Carousel. Van der Zande responded in race two. A great start put him up front and he managed to hold off intense pressure from Estre from then on. Great to watch. Unfortunately, an Acura and a Bentley were caught up in turn two mayhem. It would have been great to see the full field coming down through the esses into the chicane. I can’t wait to see them again at Laguna Seca in a couple weeks.
