Viper Racing League - 8/29/09 - Texas World Speedway

This is my first race with the Viper Racing League (Viper Days/NARRA) at Texas World Speedway on Saturday 8/29/09. We have a rolling start with a pace car and ran 12 laps for about 30 minutes. I edited this video from the 30 minute race down to 10 minutes so it would fit within the YouTube! time limit. We also had a 26 lap inverted race on Sunday for about 50 minutes but my camera messed up and I only got the first lap and it shut off. Anyway, I came in 3rd place in both races behind the World Challenge competition coupes which are much faster and have better drivers. I was extremely happy to come in 3rd. In this race, I started out in the 3rd row inside and managed to get behind Tom in his white/blue comp coupe. I chased him most of the race just waiting for a mistake. He began losing his tires and I managed to stick my nose in on turn 13. He was gracious and let me by but could have easily kept me from passing. We were pretty even the whole race and it was tons of fun. Thanks, Tom! The next race is Roebling Road in Georgia and then off to Daytona on the Rolex Series course.

Viper Racing Unofficial Fan Trailer
An excellent racing game that still (in my opinion) seems comparable gameplay-wise to today's racers. What I consider to be top-notch AI, advanced damage modeling, and an easy-to-learn, yet still complex driving model make this game a great classic. This Unofficial trailer was made entirely by myself, using FRAPS to record the video, and Windows Movie Maker to compile it all. Music: Shadow - The Prodigy

The Driver's Edge (TWS) - 911 Turbo S 1:58.7 lap on 3/3/12
My second time at the famous Texas World Speedway in College Station, TX. Running in yellow group with the Driver's Edge on 3/3/12. Car is a 2012 Porsche 911 turbo S running on Toyo R888 tires, but otherwise stock 530 hp. It was a crowded day, but fun nonetheless. It's always interesting to see where you gain time, but mainly gained time from entry into carousel, turns 13-15, and of course that crazy sequence into turn 1. I never would have guessed it until I compiled the video and watched it for myself. Skip to 10:50 to see it.
