Skies were a bit gloomy, but it was a pleasant day for some exciting racing at Circuit of the Americas!
Austin's very own Moorespeed beat everybody else by 30+ seconds in the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup .
This GT3 has been modified to run purely on maple syrup.
I love the roar through the grandstand.
This looks nothing like my trunk; what is going in there? Because racecar, I guess.
I could look at race car wheels all day long.
Not too many things sound as good as an Aston Martin. The Mercedes SLS may have been the loudest though.
The TC/TCA/TCB class was surprisingly fun to watch.
Nissan had a lovely showcase. Most street cars look dreadfully boring next to racecars; I was shocked how pedestrian a Porsche 918 looked adjacent to a 919 and 911 RSR. However the Juke NISMO is so outrageous, it is maybe one of the few normal cars that doesn't shrink in the presence of all the racecars. No pics so you will have to believe me.
What do we have here? Just some boring old cars in the parking lot I guess.
