Lotus Cup USA

The LCU, time trial. Infineon Raceway, 9/11/11.

Edit- Talked to the driver of the CO Elise right after he came in (contact with the tire wall coming out of the Esses). He was more interested in getting back out then the damage. A true track warrior...

Spyder VS Spider

Porsche RS61 Spyder:

Car was purchased new by a collector, so no racing pedigree to her. That may in part explain the excellent condition it is in.

Mother Natures take on the subject.

Fresh slicks about to be put to good use.

Part of what makes it track ready:
Roll Bar
FIA approve seats
6 Point race harness
Fire suppression system
Kill switches

Chasing down a big dog.
