    Nice driving! Looks like you don’t have the raw HP as you loose ground on the long straight but you reel them in on the corners.

    Yep! Most of the cars I am racing against have power to weight ratios in the 1HP:5LBS range while I am at 1:7. I am building a new engine for next year that will put me at 1:5 as well!

    Win or lose that looks like a damn good time. Would consider myself truly lucky to be in a position to have a car and compete in races like that!

    Even watching for a bit after 4 minutes and I am getting fatigued. Racing sure does take a lot of concentration and stamina.

    Yes, racing is a lot of effort. Nothing on the car is assisted so the steering is heavy because of the 12" front slicks, the clutch is stiff, and the brakes require a lot of pressure. Even the shifting is hard with an old style balk ring transmission. That blue Cayman that is around me the whole race has power steering, power ABS brakes, paddle shifter with no clutch, and air-conditioning!

    Then factor in the mental fatigue....
