    Yeah that was a C63 MERC done up pretty good. I watched him in the mirror for about half a lap as he desperately tried to gain ground on the Cadillac. Unfortunately for him he wasn't able to hold or use the same line we took with the Cadillac, as you can see by the result as he so elegantly slides off the track. This was footage when we ran in the dry. Wait till you see the "wet" footage.

    Watching during some of the previous sessions we were about 2-3 seconds a lap faster then the SLS.

    Nice! So I got to ask, keep in mind I just found this forum, how did you manage to get that honor. I doubt it was a contest you won or an application you filled out. Tell me who you are.
    Thanks,

    As far as the video goes - photographicly the BMW running off was the most interesting thing that happened! Doesn't take much to put Go-Pro's (great system) on your car - camera location makes a difference in the quality of the end product - good effort though. You need someone that knows how to edit! BUTT - hey your impressed!

    Long story short, we were asked to be there to drive the car for the track debut in China.
