WOW, just wow!!! that was amazing - my hearts pumping just watching him deal with the oversteer snap and the loose dirt. I thought he was a gonna a couple of times, but he got it back. Anyone who hasnt driven a 911 cannot appreciate the sheer gonads on this guy.
That gearbox is interesting, I dont think its a standard Gt3 box, it doesnt have the electronics blip the gas pedal when dropping gears, hes doing the old heel toe blipping himself. Its like a manual gearbox with hydraulic sequential shift as opposed to a semi auto - I love it
Fk me thats a fantastic hill climb circuit - never seen a guy so close to losing it like that, great vid WB :thumbup:

It's actually a Boxter, pretty dammed impressive for a convertible! The driver, not so much.

Not bad for a 42 year old car.

An art work - great stuff - the old classic engines were a truly 'God is in the detail' affair for anyone comfortable with logical and lots of time. I remember having small wheel rim weights to add balance to an old sc.

You couldnt even think about doing this with any water cooled 964 onwards car
