Why did I pull to the right? I'm still trying to figure that out. I was kinda amazed to see that blooper on the video.
Note how far behind that black 911 I was before the straightaway, I reeled him in slowly down the straight, so I think I actually have more true hp than his 1991cc mill. That's also a good example of having a higher exit speed from the last big turn. You maintain that 1 or 2mph advantage. It can overcome a hp deficit.
I think the only reason I have is that we went into the turn together, and we both gave each other a ton of leeway. I probably braked too late, and he hugged the inside. We are polite in vintage racing overall, and that may be a good example. My visibility is pretty limited, and I just didn't want to hit anyone. So, I went wide, and got on the marbles a bit, then those damned 911's pull me out of the turn consistently. I am in 4th gear exiting the turn, which is too low an rpm. If I had a close ratio box, then 3rd could be used, and that would help a lot. I'm not crying, 'cause that was just an epic battle, great for me, great for the other 911's, and great for the crowd.
I have contacted the 911 owner, who says he is copying that entire race sequence to a cd and is sending it to me. He wasn't behind me the entire time, but I'm very curious to see what he's got. If it is stellar, I can burn a copy of the cd for anyone who wants.
