Well, summer is over but the travel continues. Made 4 trips to Florida in the last month, 3 in the E46 and once with the X5. This week started out our 2021 season.

Nice to see you out for the new season OB! Hopefully I won't be "masked off" from COTA this year. Should have the Firebird completed by then - might tickle the team's fancy to see some true, old school horsepower. Are you monitoring the same data points in that series as for the TA cars?


Watch the salt spray on that gorgeous vehicle! And don't try to drive on the beach at Fort Lauderdale - soft sand , expensive tows and costly tickets.

A few more data points on these cars Steve. The downforce is insane if you get it right.

Daytona allows driving on the beach, hell the first Daytona NASCAR races were actually on the beach.

Some more car porn for those that follow my adventures in motorsports...

The new 992 Carrera Cup cars hit the circuit for the first time this week in Sebring. Looking after the Racelogic VBox video systems for the entire series. Yeah, they are fast...

Car porn is right. Clean, tidy, stout and shiny and probably soothes you to sleep at idle. Too much fun OB. Hope things open up for spectators soon.

More Car Porn

Left Sebring for the day and headed down to PBIR to shakedown the Pikes Peak Porsche GT2RS I installed the data and video system in last week at Champion Porsche Motorsports. Really good test, next run will be up the mountain...

So much awesome. Your updates here never disappoint. So glad things are returning to normal for you regarding your work schedule. And not just because we get such good auto porn.

The Pikes Peak car is flat awesome. The GT2RS is a purpose built 700HP twin turbo monster that flat gets it. Notice the key and automatic PDK.
