Mark shared the
track with Peter Argetsinger so we brought some of Mark's
racing Porsches. The "E" ticket of the day was a
ride in Mark and Stevie's 966.
The first "E"
ticket was given to Mark's buddy, Kevin Dockerman. It was
Kevin's first day on a race track. Mark gave Kevin driving
instruction and before you knew it, he was driving Mark's
hopped up 964, Then Mark let Kevin drive his '97 RSR. Much
to my amazement, he actually looked like a seasoned driver
by day's end!
In this picture,
Peter is giving his student, Andrea (who's 19 years old),
the second "E" ticket of the day. You'll see Andrea
driving her yellow Ferrari behind Lance in the G-99.
it was keen to get Peter (great instructor) to teach her at
Moroso for a day. Car control is everything when you're driving
one of these yellow things.
taking some laps in the G-99. He will be driving it with Stephen
in the Daytona Finale at the end of the Grand-Am season.
Here is Mark at
speed coming out of nine. I just noticed that the car matches
Oddly enough, Lance
bought this car at the end of the day, even after Kevin drove
the wheels off of it. I mean, he wouldn't get out! Driving
race cars is like dope, sex, and rock-and-roll, sometimes
you just can't get enough. Right Jerry?
are we having fun yet?", says Kevin to Kevin.
Mark says, "I'm
trying to sell this thing to Lance today, so we need to give
him some time in the car too, OK!"
So now Mark wants
to drive his bad boy, 962-107.
Coming and going.
We finally drug
Kevin out and now it's Lance's turn again.
So here's the deal: You can drive the car, but don't hurt
it. If you like it and are interested in buying it, we'll
let you drive it again. If you say you're going to buy it
you can drive it as hard as you like! Sound good?
This is the second
time Lance has driven today. The first time Lance did what
we asked him to do, he took it easy. The second time, he woke
the car up and started driving aggressively. You can
tell this is not Lance's first time on a race track.
"Well, I think
I'll take it!", Lance said. Kevin D. said, "I don't
need to buy a Porsche racecar because I can drive Mark or
Jerry's cars anytime, I hope I hope I hope!"
