I would never do it on 2 wheels with all the nutter cars that go around it.

This is the 997 that was fatally impacted by the ducati.
I keep looking at the dent in the roof line and it's a scary mental picture.


997 = Porsche insider code speak for the current version of the 911

And that thing is caged up...I bet the dent would have been way worse without it. Scary stuff.

I just got back from Germany and we went out on the ring with the rental car. That track is ridiculous! 13 miles long.
What a shame for the people involved in the accident.
