Here's a little incar from the first proper track outing.
The track was completely new to me so nevermind the driving. I was just feeling it out and trying to find good lines and braking spots.
The fast left hander became a 190km/h sweeper after I gathered the guts to go through it flat out...
There is obivously too much grip now so I need more power. 600hp should do it...

Amazing, simply amazing and the sound oh my the sound! Thanks for sharing.

Looks like a nice road course with run-off in lots of turns.

We had a super nice weekend, there was a Porsche Club Festival held at my "home" track (Alastaro).
Club racing and DE on saturday and DE for the whole of Sunday. Clear skye and +25C, couldn't have been better.

During the DE sessions, there was a lot of traffic on the track and I could pull only one fast lap on Sunday, it was not a good lap but the time tells me this car is FAST! Looking at my pbox data, the fast lap was a sub 1:26 lap, a whopping 3 seconds faster than last year (on same Toyo R888). And I know there is at least 1.5sec to have once I get clear track for 5-10 laps.

I think I will be looking into putting a full cage in this winter and club racing next year with it...

Man, I've been ignoring this thread for a while now and then saw the finished product on some other threads. WOW! Stunning, Juha. That must put a big smile on your face!

I ordered new outer wheel halves for the rear BBS today... these are 3.5" and the new ones will be 5". I will also need 1.5" narrower inner barrels, for which Viggo promised to help me with.
With the current barrels the wheels stick too much in and due to the deep centers on the E88s, I cannot use spacers...



Here's a little incar from Sunday at the new Botniaring track.
I had a rear wheel fail on me (own fault) in the end, going through the kink in 5th gear...:


And some footage from Alastaro:

And from the grand stands:
