Who says you cannot win a race, or drive at the head of the pack with an under-powered but well set-up performance car?
During this weekend’s session I drove a modified Subaru BRZ with around 175HP, owned and maintained by my friends at Chin Motorsports. But this is what I learned — achievement in motorsports is not just about the car, it is about the driver.
As you will see in this video, while I was overtaken by a couple monster Porsche GT3’s and a race-prepped Corvette, I consistently catch up to and even passed many more iconic power house automobiles; including BMW’s, a Corvette, a Porsche 924 and 944, even a Porsche 911.
What an incredible experience. Everyone should drive a race car — at least once (smile).
