OK, so how about that March Of Dimes PDX last Friday?? Mike ? Erik? You guys were there - what were your impressions?
I thought we had a nice "selection" of participant vehicles - Ferraris, a Maserati, a Lambo, R8, bevies of Porsches, BMW's, Corvettes, what else?
Anyone take a hellride with Peter Cunningham? In the GT40? I heard both were quite entertaining...
No hellrides for me, but he (PD) thrilled the bejesus out of my stepmom. Only complaint was that there were a number of drivers who were, shall we say, discourteous in the non-use of their mirrors; they were in fast-in-a-straight-line cars, but did all they could to hold up some more nimble cars on the more twisty bits of the track. There was a Maserati and a silver Boxter that specifically come to mind. I think the instructors riding in those cars could have been more aware of the cars wanting to get by--who were kind of hosed out of their sessions because of this.
Aside from that it was a great day--and I an glad we helped raise the money that we did! My highlight was the Audi R8 V10. It hit about 160 going into T1. It accelerated like it was being pushed by the hand of God. Amazing car, that a tall bloke like myself actually fits in.
