A few years ago I was lucky enough to "win" a ride in a 962 at Road America during a PCA club race. Although I was only a passenger, we probably hit 180 in the straights. With only the benefit of a lap belt I was thrown back as the car accelerated and then forward when the car shifted and we momentarily lost momentum. Then when he got back on it I was pressed back again. The torque and HP on the car were incredible. Truly a memorable ride.

While the sense of speed was pretty amazing I was impressed with the braking and handing on the car. The car stopped like NOW. Going thru the carousel and the kink was the coolest thing. The car felt like it was on rails. That was scary!!!
