Exclamation WHOA! If you blink you'll miss it!

Close Call.wmv - YouTube

The video we're seeing is coming from inside a Miata. There's a Boxster getting lined up for a pass by said Miata driver, with maybe a 1.5 car width between them...oh yeah, and there's also rain. So keep all of this in mind as you approach the 30-second mark. The sound is bizarre!

There is also video from inside the Exige:

threading the needle - YouTube

Doesn't have the same seat-wetting effect as the Miata's view to me, but still crazy.

Not when there's Exiges and Gallardos playing in the sandbox with the Boxsters and Miatas, Randall. Now I have to wonder how vicious some of those passes of GTs by the LMPs in ALMS must be...usually doesn't come off so bad from afar, but after seeing this...yikes.

I have to imagine the Box and MX-5 were already in triple digit territory or at least just getting to it...you'd think they were runnig in reverse at that moment.

BTW, smack anyone who tries to tell you it's a Corvette...it's clearly not...
