Chump Car at Road America, Oct 20, 2013, Hollywood, Sunday Race Start, Front Facing
Green Flag drops at 7:44. The first 7+ minutes is a 2 wide formation lap. Sunday start of the 2013 Chumpionship race at Road America. This was a continuation of Saturdays Race. The race starts in heavy fog and damp conditions. It's also damn cold and my hands are not happy. Should have worn that second pair of gloves again like during the April RA race. It's too bad the GoPro craps out, as Emitlaer, Mayhem and myself battle it out the entire stint, turning pretty consistent 2:56-2:57 lap times with Mayhem and I catching back up to the Realtime car and battling hard until they pit for what I believe is a bad wheel bearing. Mayhem (Brent driving) also has a couple epic slides through turn 1 that would have been spectacular in HD. I have a few very close calls during the heat of battle. @11:20 #197 and I almost trade paint. @25:35 and again @26:26 #421 gives me the chopper. @33:00 we go three wide entering turn 5 and have a "moment". The local yellow @ 13/14 (34:45) slows the pace a bit and spaces us out for a short time.

Vintage. The Saab 900 | drive it
Drive It! took a real rarity onto the race track: a front-wheel-drive Saab 900 turbo boasting 300 horsepower with a peak torque of 500 Nm. This Saab is a real competition car. Trimmed down to a weight of around one ton it can feel at home on any circuit. Amateur racing driver Nico Gasparatos shows what the Saab can do.
