962 VS VW?
« on: February 07, 2022, 01:28:26 AM »
Well...somebody took a 917K and stuck a VW Van body on it. Amazing that at Monza the 962's better aero doesn't make as much difference as you'd think. Just as interesting, Monza using the banking and with NO CHICANES!! The video must be years old because the Monza banking has deteriorated so badly it's now unusable.

Hey lonny good find.  :good:

The VW driver sure had some big cahoonas, speed carried through the banked section was incredible.  :yahoo:
You could almost feel the hesitancy from the Porsche in the banking.

There seems to be quite a collection of these videos on You Tube if anyone's interested.
