A not uncommon story, unfortunately. What made the rearden situation worse was that a) they weren't kids and b) it wasn't a race, just a track day.

A similar situation happened to me at Laguna...

That would have been the better story to go with. Instead they tried to blame my coach for 'cutting him off.'

Let's be clear, that car was nowhere near the pace of my car that day. With me or my...

I love Sonoma, but yes, the walls increase the pucker factor for sure. My coach almost got into 1:43, but still could have gotten closer to the wall at T10 if he was going all out. LOL.

.2RS is definitely magic!
Ha! My gearbox was puking oil out of the breather too! Porsche said normal, just keep driving. Seems to have stopped recently, though.

Yeah, I've always thought the same too about the arrow. Too much camber would cause excess wear on the inside, though and the inside looks barely worn. It could be because of the higher pressures I...

991.2 RS at Sonoma raceway

I'm kind of hesitant to post this because it's not a good example of how to properly get around Sonoma raceway. Wrong turn in points. Too much braking. Too late braking. Wrong shifting/gears. ...

1300 track miles is only 13 track days at most. The car probably had many more than that, or it was driven on some very brake heavy tracks. Those rotors look like they are delaminating and need to...
