2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS at the Autocross

This is one of the most fun cars I have ever driven at the autocross. Throttle response is immediate. It accelerates with vengeance. Sticks like superglue. And it pulls the skin off your cheeks under braking.

Contrary to popular belief, trailing throttle oversteer is very easy to manage with the 315 mm Hoosiers! Lift if you need rotation in a turn. Get on the gas if you've rotated enough. The only trouble I had with it is getting used to the really wide rear track. You never see or hear the cones. Hip-checks only. You feel like a hero until you stop by the tent to get your time and the Announcer goes "You swiped 3 cones with the rear of the car by the end of the first runway and we stopped counting..." Thanks -- it really doesn't matter when you're having so much fun!

And here are the Results form the event.
