SCCA Runoffs Early 1980's
This movie has a major star in it....Paul Newman. Probably the greatest
Formula Ford driver of all time Dave Wietzenhof (only because he didn't
move on to upper formula) wins. My goal but we didn't make unfortunately.

2013 SCCA National Championship Runoffs at Road America
This is the 50th SCCA National Championship Runoffs H Production race as
seen from the #99 Toyota Yaris of Jason Isley. Started 5th, but it didn't
last long as things went bad in a hurry. In Turn 1 I received a hit in the
right rear corner from Chris Albin, who appeared to dip his right side
tires in the grass under braking, which knocked the alignment out of whack
- fortunately Road America is predominately right hand turns, and the car
still worked great in those, but the car picked up a big push in Turns 5, 6
and 8. At the same time two of the leaders, Tim Pitts and Jay Griffin, got
together just ahead of me. Luckily just as I recovered the car a gap opened
between the spinning cars, and I came out in 3rd place. However, a black
flag all reset the field to the previous order for the restart - back to
5th. About mid-point in the time shorten race things took a turn for the
worse, I had a run going down to Canada Corner and went for the outside at
Kettle Bottoms, Albin started to drift right, I went left and so did he. On
a prior lap I had passed him in the same place, on the left side, and I
guess he took notes and was not going to leave that door open again. The
hit killed the front of my car. With the front now flattened my top speed
was limited and the car began to overheat. Was happy to hold on for the 6th
and final trophy.
Best GTR launch control reaction ever
Courage is strong in this beautiful GTR Pilot! She took the directions
given to her and just rolled with it!
I love the part where the fear takes over body control, which makes it hard
for her to think straight to let off the gas to make it stop. Hahahahaha
This is by far the best GTR Reaction I have ever seen with for GTR Launch

The McLaren P1 Test. On Road and Track - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris drives the new $1.2 million McLaren P1 at the Yas Marina Grand
Prix circuit in Abu Dhabi UAE. Before taking to the track at night, Chris
Harris chats with Chris Goodwin, the Chief Test Driver for McLaren
Automotive to discuss the technology of McLaren's latest offering, perhaps
the definition of the modern day hypercar.
Fair warning, the McLaren Chris Harris drives in this video is the XP7, the
pre-production prototype for P1. The car has had a long life over the past
15 months, driving around the world and clocking over 40,000 hard miles.
