Autocross video of 997

You San Diego guys and your great weather.... now I see you also have a great Autocross venue as well. 12 months of Autocross over there?
(its like 0 degrees in NYC right now, no Autocross for another 2 months)

btw, to those of you unfamiliar with Autocross this entire lap was done in 2nd gear. 3rd gear is good for 100+mph, at that speed its not really an autocross anymore.

That is quite a course! The ONE I ran on was much shorter and tighter. 45 mph was as fast as I could go. Cool video.

yes definitely an excellent lot for Autox, nice and open. I really hate these mickey mouse courses where its just a sea of cones and you can't really get deep into 2nd gear at all. The elevation on this course looks like fun too.

btw, you can really see the pendulus nature of the rear engined 911 in that first corner where he got on the brakes too late. Can't wait to see the CaymanS go up against those 997s. MID ENGINE PORSCHES!!
