I agree, but here’s the problem… Several years ago DE’s would be 80% older 911’s and their equivalents… today it is just the opposite. I find that there are mostly newer, more “civilized” cars running around the track. When faced with this type of competition it is hard for the average driver to find himself keeping up, and it’s demoralizing to find yourself at the back of the pack all the time. Granted, honing your skills can bring you back to the front again but what happens as time goes by? More and more newer technology is appearing and soon the newer cars on the track will simply be unmatchable, regardless of your driving skills. And yes, you can find consolation in the fact that your skills made you the master of this older car, but that feat will loose it’s glamour as you come prancing in behind everyone else.
