At the Daytona 24 Hours, the Audi R8 GRAND-AM has made its best showing to date: Filipe Albuquerque/Oliver Jarvis/Edoardo Mortara/Dion von Moltke won the GT category in a dramatic finale. The runners-up trailing the winners by 1.4 seconds were Ian Baas/Marc Basseng/René Rast/Frank Stippler.
Despite 65 percent of each lap having been driven at full throttle the R8 GRAND-AM that is powered by a production-derived 5.2-liter V10 FSI engine was running flawlessly on the notorious oval track for a whole day and night. With the class victory at Daytona Audi, under factory commitments or in cooperation with its customers, has now won the world's most important 24-hour races.
Audi's first 24-hour victory in the United States completes an impressive track record. After eleven victories at Le Mans plus the successes of the R8 LMS at Spa, Zolder and the Nürburgring, Audi -- thanks to its customer teams at Daytona -- has decided another classic 24-hour race in its favor.

1977 01 30 Daytona IMSA 24 Hour Race
This is an 8mm w/sound, 30 min long, conversion to video of our (Buz
Fyhrie, Dave Fyhrie, Jack Finucan, Dan & Maggy Hartzel) road trip from
Chicago in a Dodge Van to Daytona, Florida for the 1977 IMSA 24-Hour Race.
I was there to drive a AA/GT Camaro (green) race car and also
be a backup driver on the Mancuso-Greenwood AA/GT Corvette. I worked at
Motor Sport Research in Des Plaines, IL who was the race shop that built
the 427 CID engine for Mancuso and this Greenwood Corvette. Leaving Chicago
we got caught in a blinding snow storm and had to follow a snow plow just
to make our way via the back roads to Indianapolis, IN in order to rejoin
the Interstate. We stopped in at Disney World (Orlando) for a visit there
on a cold and rainy day. No lines anywhere on any of the rides on a lousy
day in late January. LOts of interesting classic race footage shot by Dave
Fyhrie around the pits and garages of the Speedway with cameo appearances
by several famous drivers including: Paul Newman,Sam Posey (interviewed by
Dave), Hurley Haywood (winner), Rick Mancuso, John Greenwood, Paul DiPerro
and lots of others. I'll add more data later. Enjoy a real classic video.

Test Drive 2007 Mazda RX-8 w/ Exhaust, and Full Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour and test drive of a 2007 Mazda
RX-8. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of
this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration with a full
test drive over various road scenarios you might encounter during daily
driving. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
