HPDE Very Close Call with an S2000- HyperFest

What a great weekend! The Boxster held up great through all 8 seasons with only a little brake fade. Couldn't be happier. No idea what happened to the S2000 here, the driver doesn't know either. We were going about 110mph here.

Yowza... no arm restraints???

My $ is on he ever so slightly tugged on wheel while pulling hand back in from point by... he was still drifting out when giving you point by and he tried to catch it one handed.

Glad nobody was hurt...

Great job avoiding him! You demonstrated excellent car control by smoothly driving into the grass.

He should have offered to pay to have your radiators cleaned of all the debris that your car picked up.

I think you meant sessions there big cat. If the Boxster made it through 8 seasons it would either be starring on a TV sitcom (without getting fired) or is currently located on Jupiter. I'm not sure, but I think Jupiter has 8 seasons.

I was at Hyperfest with TGH this weekend too and he and his car handled the track well. The off track experience did result in the entire under-tray of the car getting spit out on the back straight though!

Cheers buddy and I can't wait to get out there next year!
