TRUTH IN 24 II - Every Second Counts
The Le Mans 24 Hours are a legend. They are mentioned in the same breath as
the Rallye Monte Carlo, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.
Since 1923, hundreds of thousands of motorsport enthusiasts have been
flocking to La Sarthe year by year to experience the one-day race. To watch
the protagonists in their sports cars battle for each place and each meter
of tarmac with bated breath. The drivers cover 4,800 kilometers in 24 hours
- almost as many as the Formula One racers in a whole year. Every Le Mans
winner has gone down in history. The three Audi drivers Andr‚Äö
Lotterer, Beno≈ít Tr‚Äöluyer and Marcel F‚Äûssler did so in a
special way with the triumph they achieved in 2011. The film TRUTH IN 24 II
documents the tenth and arguably most emotional triumph of the brand with
the four rings at this sports car classic. After two Audi R18 TDI cars have
retired following spectacular accidents, the remaining Audi fights a
dramatic battle for overall victory with the three Peugeot 908 cars ? which
the Audi trio ultimately decides in its favor with a narrow margin of 13
seconds. The film captures the entire drama of the fourth-narrowest running
of the Le Mans 24 Hours ? with intimate insights into the team of Audi
Sport and breath-taking pictures.

Spec Miata Mayhem at Roebling
Nothing like the start of a Spec Miata race for crazy excitement. People
get shuffled out of order and it takes a few laps to sort things out. Make
sure you see the action at 2:20.
This is 5 laps from the Sarrc Invitational Challenge, the championship race
for the SCCA Southeast Division at Roebling Road Raceway near Savannah, GA,
held October 9th, 2011.

C5 Corvette at Road Atlanta - NASA-SE March 2011
More HPDE at Road Atlanta. I thought I would try following the gray Honda
S2000. Street tires and a greasy track made for some entertaining moments
(see 2:24 and 2:41) and the honda gets away. I need sticky tires. (data by
TRD Ferguson - ChumpCar - Road America - October 20, 2013
Here's TRD Ferguson's start of the race on Sunday. We were able to move
through the field pretty well until our brakes started fading pretty badly.
The stock brake system isn't really able to handle the speeds produced by
our new engine. At least a brake upgrade will make a nice winter project
Audi RS 4 on Road Atlanta with BMW CCA/ACNA
On March 4, 2012.
At 6:58, a pass signal to the blue TT is waved off. At 9:20, three cars
are pitting in, and no traffic is visible in front or behind. For a couple
of moments I'm wondering if I somehow missed a flag or something. At
10:47, an off track car is visible, and it causes a yellow flag at 12:20.
Data was collected with an iPhone and synced with the video manually, and
so should be considered approximate. :)
Miatas at the Gap 2011
Here is footage I put together from my trip to MATG, miatas at the gap. It
was my first time at tail of the dragon and it was by far the most fun I
have ever had!! I will for sure be there next year!
