Default I go to Porsche Track day @ Road Atlanta

Adam, my colleague, is a member of Porsche club of America (PCA) he owns a late 80's Porsche 944 S2 and his father Russell drives a Cadillac CTS-V. Both father and son go to Track day events arranged by Porsche Club of america.
I had gone with them for the event held at Talladega Grand prix Raceway but that was significantly smaller in comparison.
Needless to say , i got the invite to join them for the event held at Road Atlanta, Braselton,GA

Road atlanta is a road course 60 miles north of Atlanta. This is a very high speed race track and is also the venue of one of the american Le mans series.

Now this is just taking it too far Avi! First, the superb thread on NASCAR and now this! You've really out-done yourself this time! Fantastic stuff man!

All those Porsches look so tantalizing! That white 996 GT3, that '86 911 3.2, that gorgeous 964 and that 993, that Boxster Spyder and all those beautiful 997s. Not to mention, of course, the light sprinkling of M3s and those 'Vettes. That white E21 Bimmer takes the cake though!

5 stars!

That red Porsche 964 Cabriolet looks heavily modded. For one thing, it's got the front-end of a 993 and it's odd that the 964 Turbo has only a single pipe, a la, the 930. Generally, the 964/965 has two exhaust-pipes! Strange 911, that.

Great pictures Avi! Waiting for more!

Its always a pleasure to read your threads from track days and other events 14000rpm. This thread is no different. Superb pictures and even those Boxter Spyders look really sweet. Any Carrera GT at the event?

Waiting for your on track pictures and videos. Rated this thread 5 stars. Keep it coming.

Well.. it's just my love for Porsches, that's all. I've always loved Porsches right from when I was 5! And many years later, I had the privilege of being driven in one and that memory will be etched in my brain forever!

The white 997-I GT3-RS looks brilliant, with those optional red rear-clusters. And the new 997-II GT3 looks even better! The wheels and the exhaust on the red GT3 aren't stock (GMG exhausts)! Very subtly and tastefully done!
