    Thumbs up We captured vids of both an R8 V8 Coupe and V10 Spyder doing laps around Laguna Seca.

    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!

    I'll keep that in mind! Although, you don't think NASA would care that you're off playing with cars rather than spaceships?

    They're not the same runs, as I had them come in so that I could swap the GoPro camera between cars, but yeah that would give you a decent idea of the track fore and aft.
