Second Drive: Porsche Carrera C2 at Talladega Gran Prix Raceway

I had a second opportunity to enjoy a private track day at Talladega Gran Prix Raceway in Munford Alabama over the spring. The stable of cars was again impressive. My Porsche Carrera 996 was joined by a Porsche Carrera 993, Porsche GT3, Porsche Speedster (with a true racing history), Two race-prepped Miatas, BMW M3 to name a few. We arrived at the track at 9:00 AM eager to spend the day blasting down the straights and sweeping through the turns. By the end of the day both drivers and cars had done their best. Everyone safe. Every car straight and still running. What more could you ask for? I again shot some video, but as you can see, the seat-belted tripod with my trusty Panasonic point-and-shoot did much better than the hand held attempt you see in the earlier post. I also decided to embellish the production of this second drive. I hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed the ride.
