Passing Porsches - SLK350 6 Spd. @ Homestead Miami Road Course
Video of me lapping Homestead-Miami's road Course in my stock (down to paper OEM air filters!) 2006 SLK350, 6-Speed manual on run-flat tires. This is an HPDE event at Homestead with PCA Gold Coast Region. This is my second PCA event, and my third time on Homestead. At the event, I was concentrating on keeping my line, and keeping my car and others safe. However, when I watched the video, it looked cool, like a cat and mouse game with the 911 turbos. There are multiple passes. If you have never been to a PCA Driver's Ed event (HPDE) you must go! They are some of the most wonderful people (even putting guys cars up on jacks and changing their brake fluid for them!) and they run a safe event with a lot of good instruction.
