SORC 2012 1973 Mercury Montego GT
This is something of a tribute video to Chris Bischof's video that got me
really excited about this race way back in 2003.
My average on the northbound leg was 90.004 mph, which was good enough for
second place in the class, but my average of 89.722 on the return leg
resulted in a 9th place finish.

2013 Outing at High Plains Raceway in the LS1 Porsche 944
A few laps at Colorado's High Plains Raceway on July 14, 2013. Car is my
'89 Porsche 944 with an LS1 in it. It was a bit down on power this event,
but still doing ok. I'm running Toyo RA1 race tires, they were going away
at the end of the session, lots of drifting at that point. The white 944
also has an LS1, weighs 500lbs less than me and was on BFG R1's. The Cobra
weighs 1000lbs less than me (!!) was on Kumho 710's and makes way more
power and torque than I do.

A nice example! The same underpinnings were used in Torinos, Cougars and
Mustangs of the era. A
nice, luxurious car! Nice paint and interior! This one has the bonus of

Some of the other cars at High Plains Raceway
Playing with a few other cars at High Plains Raceway. First, a modified E39
M5. I was laughing at this one because I have a stock M5 in the garage, and
it's never really felt slow to me. Still, the Miata drove around it.
But if that made me feel fast, the combination of a McLaren MP4-12C and a
modified Porsche turbo sure solved that.
Look at how they run away on the straight! Actually, following the McLaren
around that sweeper was the best part.
Then, to finish things off, you hear me break my halfshafts and lose drive.
That's the spike in engine revs right at the end of the video before I dive
The car is the Targa Miata, a 400 hp V8-powered Miata. You can read more
