Some photos of my trip couple months ago. View from hotel, freezing cold!!!



Legendary Porsche 962 that dominated Cam-Am, Group-C and IMSA GTP racing for decades. Still holds Nurburgring Nordschleife record to this day.


Lining up in rain.


I love racing in rain!!! :)


Dan Gurney's awesome AAR Eagle MKIII-GTP that set lap-record at end of IMSA era back in 1993 driven by PJ Jones. That's 26-years ago! Had smallest displacement of entire field, yet got 800bhp from 2.1L 3S-GTM engine. They blew up 4 of TRD's dynos to tune these monsters!


After 26-years, this is car that finally broke record by 0.19s.




Tunnel to in-field


Interesting Toyota.


Anyone know which model this is?

Those headlights are early Gen3 Camry; ‘92 thru ‘94. In ‘95, the inner shape came to a point instead of having a flat there.

Sorry, no butt shots! Headlights certainly look like XV10 Camry, but rest of body doesn’t. Strange.

I guess it could be Camry. But Camry seems more curved. Look at where A-pillar wraps onto roof, and where roof curves down to C-pillar. More curvy on Camry. Also front edge of bonnet appears to curve downward more on Camry

The stock Camry photo you posted is a coupe, which has different lines on the C-pillar. The subject car is a sedan, like this.

Cool! Which engine did they use in Touring series? In U S., we didn’t get 210bhp 3.3 V6 until the +2001 XV30 SE models.
That one was built to Super Tourer reg so would have been a ~300HP 3SGE, they were also raced in Group N Production here in the late 90s with the factory 1MZ in the XV20
