Here's this weekend's Spec Boxster Race from Watkins Glen. New build did pretty well, despite being a little loose.

 

The pavement is a little slick now that the temps have come up for the summer. A rain line is beginning to develop as well.

A little loose?  Now the Todd I know would not have backed out in the last turn on the second to last lap.  What's happening to you :) I thought you had him several times in lapped traffic.  Great drive.

That was fun, thanks for sharing Todd. More variation in power at the front than I would have expected

97 vs 99 model years.  OK just kidding.

 

We are breaking in a motor and have heavy oil in the car. I'm also late to power and having to breathe it a bit on some of the exits - still dialing in setup. So until we get our ducks in a row, I'm not about to start pointing fingers at anyone else.

 

28 Spec Boxsters for this event. Lots of fun!

PCA 13/13 rule - can't have any kind of contact because you'll get probation, so can't force the issue as much as SM does. Cars are about $50k (and of course the high dollar GT3 classes are $150k+) so I'm good with that rule.

Cars are about $50k

 

The exhaust note alone of a Porsche flat six is worth about $20K so that makes the rest of the car a bargain.

I enjoyed the video Todd. In comparison to the car Mike references, your driving is as expected very precise, smooth and consistent. Your corner exit speed was also textbook as you lost very little momentum through the turns. Congrats on the new build. That engine sounds pretty sweet!
