Some in car video from last weekends vintage enduro at The Glen.

My son is driving my 66 Mustang.  As you will see he is a much faster driver than I am; 2.5 seconds a lap faster despite not having 2nd gear for most of his stint and only having 10 laps in the car.

That's Amazing. I got so enthralled I kept trying to use my look left/right buttons on my wheel to look around.

2nd Gear?? We don't need no stinkin 2nd gear. (With apologies to the writer of the novel The Treasure of the Sierra Madre).

TTFN

I started out with nothing and still have most of it left.

Fast, Cheap, Reliable. Choose any 2.

Great stuff Burt. Kyle was very patient early on with the Porsche's. Impressed how he he made sure to make safe passes, also encountering slow cars like the Mini. I guess the low end torque helped after the 2nd gear failure. ;)

The Boot makes the Glen much more interesting.

PS: very nice wide mirror, must help  a lot for awareness.

I taught him a few things but you cant teach quick reactions.  He is faster than me by about the same margin that Robert is.

Awesome Burt ! Shame about 2nd and those bloody Porsche's getting in the way. BTW would love one of those rear vision mirrors for GPL.

We had no chance of catching the winning S2000.
