Watkins Glen PCA Riesentoter 2010 - VW Corrado VR6 - JS2 w/data & gopro
Our Blog: www.4amracing.com
Day 3, black run group session 3 with the Porsche Club Riesentoter chapter.
The car is a VW Corrado with a VR6 engine.
Same video as before, but now with GPS data, ie: track map, speed, lap
times, etc. & GoPro video
Instead of paying for a quality data overlay program, I used RACECHRONO2AVI
to create the data overlay videos and then used FCE to marry all of the
separate videos together.
Watkins Glen 2009 - Bill Auberlen & Joey Hand
BEST VIEWED IN HD! This is DUAL in-car footage from both the #96 Turner
Motorsport BMW M3 and the #97 Turner Motorsport BMW M3. From Round 6 of the
Grand-Am KONI Challenge race at Watkins Glen, June 7, 2009. Footage begins
with Bill & Joey coming in for their final pit-stop (under a full course
caution) to take fuel and tires. The video then skips ahead a few minutes
to the restart -- where some SERIOUS nose-to-tail racing ensues. Both Bill
and Joey fight their way through some seriously dense traffic to make their
way back up to the front positions. Once the ST class traffic has been
cleared, the video jumpt to a battle with 2 Mustangs, and lastly to Bill and Joey
trying to fend off a Porsche. In the end, the TRG Porsche piloted by Andy
Lally is able to get by both Bill and Joey's Turner M3s to win the race,
though not without a hard fight from the TMS BMWs.
Turner Motorsport wants to congratulate the following people:
- Bill Auberlen & Matt Bell for their 2nd place finish. Matt also qualified
the car on pole, and held the car in 1st/2nd through his stint.
- Joey Hand & Chris Gleason for their 3rd place finish. Joey also turned
the fastest lap of the race!
- Andy Lally & John Potter in the #41 TRG Porsche 997 for the hard fought
win. (See you in Mid-Ohio!)
- The Turner Motorsport sponsors:
* H&R Sprongs - Germany's best springs & suspensions
* StopTech Brakes - providing our BMWs with the best brakes.
* MOTUL Fluids - High tech lubricants, race winning performance
* Pagid Brake Pads - High performance friction we count on.

Watkins Glen - Evo X - May 2010 HPDE with PCA - Day 2 - Session 2
Nothing too crazy happened on this session, still haven't run into the red
Nissan GTR on race rubber that was garaged right next to me in the pits
since the first day when he was still on stock pads. Now that he swapped in
race pads he reported that he was hitting 148 mph on the back stretch and
is staying competitive with the black Z06, maybe slightly slower since he's
still learning the car and he is more used to his Lotus Elise.
I tried to keep the black Z06 in sight for a bit once again but traffic and
a few slow point byes meant I was just going to work on my lines a bit. Had
a few 4 wheel drift moments doing late passes into the chute of turn 6 but
nothing the car didn't give me confidence with. The off camber turn 9 had
some similar late passes but I knew to hug the apex a bit longer until the
car was recovering and still had room to track out the car with no problem.
This is my daily driver and was setup for reliable operation at 25 psi Boost (~500 crank HP @ 3500
lbs)Temperatures were warm in the low 80's during late morning and I was
reaching ~150 mph on the back stretch without traffic on the second day.

Great event with a great group of people. Much fun was had.
