Talking 1LE beating up on a Viper!! *Video*

I continue to be impressed with this car all the time. As I am hopefully improving on my performance driving skills and am asking more and more of the car it continues to deliver and impress. I just love it when I can run with and pass sports car that costs twice as much. (GTR's, Vipers, M3's, Porsche's ect.) Here is a video I clipped together of my last HPDE event at Road Atlanta. This Viper and I were going at it back and forth throughout the weekend. His car was honestly faster though and once he started to figure it out it was hard to keep up.

His use of track was poor, which left a lot of speed on the table for him (thus you whooping his ass). Was that a regular Viper with a wing he added, or was that an ACR?

You on the other hand: Great use of track and foot work (nice heel work). I love RA. Have been on the track (parade lap) during the AMA SuperBike races many moons ago, but have never had real seat time there. Bucket list item for me.

Nice!!!

Although, shouldn't the title be - The driver of a 1LE beating up on the driver of a Viper? You out drove him, your car was just a tool to do so.

Thanks for the comments! I appreciate them. I'm not sure what kind of Viper that was but it was not stock. He had a role cage, a wicked lope at idol, and the race gas he was using was burning my eyes. As the weekend progressed so did he and he got faster. My exhaust is pretty loud but through the use of an external mic is why it sounds so good on video. The regular GoPro mic will just leave you with muffled wind noise.
