It is pretty insane though, I must admit......

Maybe more excited? China launching a communication satellite into orbit is impressive, but go karting is a lot more exciting...

Not for me, I confess, but as I'm wildly out of step with those who are excited, I'll leave it there. There is another version of the video in which it would appear that all was not as it seemed.......

ROFL, that is awesome! I did expect to see a hatchback in the armco ahead of the Porsche at some point on the record lap, but I guess they have the $ for private testing!

Goodwood will have an interesting battle between the 919 EVO and the VW ID R Pikes Peak soon.

GasperG has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
This will be interesting, average speed is a little lower (~160 kmh), so it may be I.D. R benefit, but Porsche is more tuned up race car, you can't ignore 5 years of development and fine tuning.

My bet is on 919.

Porsche said that they're done with records after the Nurburgring run, the press release after that lap record said that pretty explicitly. I guess they'll only do a slow-speed demo run at Goodwood. The ID.R on the other hand is explicitly noted to be going for a proper timed run.

Guess what? VAG Group will win and in the end they will have a few idiots applauding this media stunt.

Win what? Doesn't look like the 919 is going for a 'record run' so it's up to the Pikes Peak ID.R which they admitted might not break the record by Heidfeld. So there's no guaranteed win at all.

The entire Goodwood FoS is a "media stunt". But it also allows us to look at nice cars.

What you're doing is complaining about your dog barking.

I hope they still have a crack at Laguna Seca.

Goodwood doesnt phase me if they just do a demo run. I'm pretty convinced the 919 Evo is capable of taking the outright record in the right hands anyway.

Speaking of Porsche LMP1 I'more interested in the first public appearance of 9R3 Projekt

I would like to see them give the Goodwood hillclimb record a try, they already have done enough at Spa and the Nurburgring, why not try another
