Viper In car video @ Autobahn Country Club road course

For you road race guys

In car vid of a practice session at the Autobahn Country Club. The fastest car of the day was a Porsche GT3 Cup car that was running a 2:32. I was knocking out 2:40 in lap traffic with a great deal left on the table This was our first testing at the track with our 96RT-10 Road Race Viper. 3400lbs race weight & 500rwhp. The slicks I was running were 6 years old but still had a little life in them. With proper tires and a clean qualifying lap I think we could play beneath 2:35

I left the vid go longer because I wanted to show the team units that are being built around the track, the timing and scoring and general members building in the pit area.

When exiting the track (pit in towards the end of the vid) you'll see a large team unit building (10,000sf that is owned by a member) that will house road race toys and be used for his personnal entertainment.

There will be a total of about 40 member owned team unit buildings around the perimeter of the track.

The track is awesome and when the entire facility is built out the ACC will be one of the coolest road course facilities in the country.

The vid is 26meg but you can stream it if you don't want to download it :thumb:

Lapping session

Looks like a terrific track.

Great vid. One suggestion though - sacrifice the vid length for higher res.

Ron,

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing you on the track and collecting on your promise of an outing at the Autobahn one of these days! I'm downloading the vid to be watched a million times studying each of your moves on the track. I'll watch the vid so many times that my Windows Media Player will shout ENOUGH!! NO MORE!!

You definitely represent the community well like Tommy Archer does when it comes to road racing, so I'm looking to learn all that I can from watching the video.

Thanks for recording your track time.

Jay K.

Thanks Leslie. Never been to VIR but watched some vids and I can see how they are similar. Same type of Country Club experience with similar track lengths, layout etc. If you're ever in Chicago and want to check out the track give me a call :thumb:

I wanted to show all the different cars getting passed, race prepared Classic Mustang, Porsche, Ferrari, BMW......granted the Viper I was driving had the advantage and it shows how much on each car as they disappear in the rear view mirror...next time shorter/hi res dogfight in the turns :thumb:

Thanks Jay :thumb:

Get your car ready and lets go!

Thanks for the compliment about representing but it's quite an overstatement.

I'm no where near the level that Tommy Archer has represented and can only dream of being in such a position. As far as competing at those levels or higher, I know 110% that I could play an intense serious chess game with Tommy or anybody else, granted there's similar equipment involved. There's lots of skilled drivers out there and it takes being the "overall package" : Consistent, able to communicate the car with the engineers, staying clean on the track, car conservation, being liked by the crew, well spoken and somewhat good looking, politically verse in composure...etc....oh yeah and also very fast.

This was only a practice session and the edge looks much different :thumb:

Nice video Ron, what day was that? Who was running the GT3 with the fast time?

By the way I know the driver of the #46 M3 you passed, he is a hell of a driver, races T2 in SCCA. Nice pass.

Hello Jr., Hello Marry
That was my Christmas gift to you Rohn. You better hurry up or your gift certificate will expire

All you need is a car and I'll spend the day/weekend with you helping in anyway I can, with everything I know. I know members with team units and could most likely get you a spot to park a toy. Members fly in and burn tires, brakes and gas for the weekend and fly out. As a guest they only allow you to drive the track twice a year in order to keep the memberships exclusive.

Make it a plan to come up twice a year and we'll tear it up. It's not if you can do it, it's how bad do you want to do it?

I'm not sure how fast but we had a 3:73 gear and I was hitting around 5000-5500 in 5th, 140+mph maybe?? If you notice, the end of each long straight is on a downhill pitch and you can't carry as much speed as it seems you should be able too, otherwise your on an OCE.
