My nipples are hard. I think I had an accident while watching.

Just wish I could see the Tach and Speedo. Looks like a really fun way to spend a day.

WOW! What a show off! I noticed that despite all the sideways showing off, 99.9% of the apexes were executed to perfection. This guy not only has the cojones to whip this car on the track, but obviously lots of skill as well. Did you see the rate of "scenery blur" on the last straight? The car must be north of 180mph! The CTR can do 211 with some room.

Anyone know who stefan Rosler is? Does not ring a bell with me...
