I was at a press event with the good folks from the Western Automotive Journalist group last week, and on Wednesday we had full use of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and various makes and models to test. Audi of America was nice enough to bring out both a V8 Coupe and a V10 Spyder, and luckily I had my GoPro with me to capture some goodness.
I grabbed two of the best drivers/instructors on hand from Hooked on Driving and we put the cars through their paces. It was an all around magical day, and I just love how the footage came out! We hit some slower traffic at points, but overall were able to really get the cars up to speed and through the twisties. And come on, look at that sky! It was raining nonstop just the day before!
