Daytona at Road America

 By: CantDrive55 : August 14th, 2021-00:57
Brought The daily driver Daytona to the Porsche Carrera Cup North America races this past weekend at Road America. Iโ€™ve been racing for three years now, and was fortunate to have had my first podium finishes ever - a 2nd in Race 1, and a 3rd in Race 2.  Not going to lie โ€“ I was a pretty happy guy this weekend, for sure - mustโ€™ve been all those perfect lap times the Daytona kept!  ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐ŸŽ ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿ†

Congrats! The team did great!

Pretty amazing! What top speed did you hit?

 By: darrony : August 14th, 2021-04:57

About 165 - but thatโ€™s the easy part - itโ€™s that #5 tight right hander at the end that gets my attention!

Yeah; that ainโ€™t no oval track!!!

Wow, bravo! That must have been a super great moment! Now, time to see you at Le Mans!

Unlike, unfortunately - but, as the saying goes, โ€œThe only difference between goals and dreams? Execution.โ€

Would love to share your hobby but Iโ€™m afraid my driving skills are not up to scratch ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Thanks - Itโ€™s very learnable - I started at Porsche Driving School in Birmingham, Alabama!

Congratulations, by any chance is this Dr. Tom?

 By: aperna : August 14th, 2021-13:23

Thank you - Second part is right, but Iโ€™m not a Dr.!

Thanks, J - between race weekend and the Pro-Am in NC, itโ€™s been a great week! ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŒ๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

 By: CantDrive55 : August 15th, 2021-19:14

Big week for sure. How did the Pro Am go ?

 By: holdemchamp1225 : August 15th, 2021-20:28

Had lots of fun - played 9 holes with Sung Jae Im and 9 holes with Justin Rose - Rose couldnโ€™t have been nicer or more fun!

 By: CantDrive55 : August 16th, 2021-03:58

Good to hear. That must have been a blast indeed. Never had a chance to play with SJI but did see and play with JR a couple of times over the years ๐Ÿ‘
