Porsche Carrera C2 at Talladega Gran Prix Raceway

I’ve had the opportunity to track my 1999 Porsche Carrera C2 at Little Taladega two times over the last three years. The race track is the first of its kind in the United States. Talladega Gran Prix Raceway was originally designed by Ed Bargy as a motorcycle road race course. Typical race tracks were designed primarily for car racing with motorcyclists merely being an afterthought. Talladega Gran Prix Raceway was designed to avoid the use metal or concrete barriers outside of corners, which for a motorcyclist could mean the difference between a major injury or death and just a scrapped up bike and set of leathers. This is the first time on the track. It was a blast, and I plan to return as much as possible. Enjoy!
