Here's an exciting time trial session filmed during the March 2011 NASA racing weekend at Road Atlanta.
Some of the many insane cars participating include:
Ferrari 360 Challenge
Dodge Viper RT/10
Porsche 997 MKII GT3 RS
These great cars were filmed flying by on Road Atlanta's famously long back straightaway, producing some lovely sounds!
NASA SE June Jam 2011 Saturday Thunder Race
After leading the Saturday ST2 race at Rd Atl, I had a Mustang running me really hard any chance he got close in traffic. I didn't really understand why he was doing that, but had a good time racing with him anyway. He managed to get by me twice in the race in traffic, but I was able to get back around him both times and pull away with ease. With 2 laps to go in the race, I had an ABS failure that caught me by suprise in T7 and nearly threw it off track. The Mustang went around and I tucked him behind him deciding not to race with him any longer and put it on cruise control since I had such a big lead on the rest of the guys in my class.
Here's the good part. It turns out that he was in my class all along and I didn't even know it (no class stickers on his car). I placed 2nd.
Buttonwillow Raceway 13 CW NASA Pro Racing March 10, 2011
A great time with friends and competators. Was down on good tires but great fun pushing the truck at it's adhesive limits. Wanted to keep up with the 66 truck but its grunt was just too much. Not too mention the Blue Mazda GT again blocked me and I almost did a loop in that very same corner with him several months ago! Got some good vid of my friend John and his well sorded Porsche and a very tight white rotary.

NASA VIR LapDance - Sunday Race - 20-Feb-11
"Graduated" from NASA CompSchool on Friday, this is video from my second race on Sunday at VIR. Race Class was GTS3 in the Thunder race group.
Qualified P2 but a couple "rookie" mistakes during the first 3 minutes of the race landed me in 6th place. Fought my way back to 3rd learning a lot about managing traffic, being patient, tire management and focus.
