|From VIR Winter 2011|
Troy Truglio's V6 MR2 last lap at VIR, breaking Scott Barton's lap record of 2.25.400. Tim Stephens has the overall lap record in a GT3 MK1 MR2 at 2.13.00, but that is a tube framed racer.
Here I am taking laps in the V6 MR2 while Troy videos a drive by. The sound from the single exit exhaust is really nice. Not too loud, but down shifting sounds ubber sweet.
Here is Troy doing a fly-by
I am now in the seat after we ate lunch for a 20 minute session. I pointed the camera to the rear and caught a few cars that were on track. I almost lost it under power before the bridge due to cold tires and excess pedal on the first lap.
and here is my 2001 2ZZ-GE powered MR2 Spyder on it's first track. Had an over heating issue. Could be due to either an air bubble or failing water pump.
