Car porn, wheel-to-covered-wheel edition

Let’s end the week on an awesome note, courtesy of Axis of Oversteer.  First we have footage of the Blancpain Endurance GT series, round 1 at Monza, from above the front straight’s nanny chicane (which I must admit produced some pretty cool passes) and a number of perspectives around the Variante Ascari.  Crank up the volume for this one:

Next, here’s Sean Edwards at Hockenheim passing a ton of cars in a Porsche Carrera Cup Germany race.  Turn down the volume, it’s mostly wind noise (alas), but this one’s worth watching in full-screen HD:

Fascinating to see how slicks work on a partially dry track — most of the stadium portion is wet but the drivers on slicks seem to have pretty decent pace regardless.  The folks on wets seemed to fall off the pace after half a dozen laps or thereabouts; probably cooked the tires.
