Sports Car Invitational

The races were great this weekend. The 917 didn't race, but did do some parade laps. The 962's won - Canepa's Nissan may have been the fastest car, but he had mechanical difficulty. The Boxster didn't do so well in the PCA race, but looked awful good. I got some pictures that I may post if I get the chance. There was a lot of good racing in PCA and the KlubSports groups.

The Porsche corral was inside the paddock on Sunday, just on the outside of turn 3 - that was pretty cool.

Re: Sports Car Invitational

Sounds fun! Here are a few pics snapped at Canepa's on the recent Babbler visit.

This is Canepa's 917 (is it a 917-30?)




12 cylinders over 1100 hp




Front suspension - the frame is light aluminum tubing, Bruce likens it to a lawnchair with an engine! Apparently a very dangerous car to crash.




Twin turbos




This is Canepa's Nissan race car

Re: Sports Car Invitational

I missed it on the track. The info on it said that it could go from 0-150 MPH in 5.7 seconds - that I would like to see.

Nice work Doug!

It might be a good idea to start putting copyright notices on them like the other famous photographers do

Nice work! Enjoyed the copyright on the front nose.
What type of camera did you use?
