And it is interesting to think about the future of this sort of racing and what it will yield in terms of engineering and innovation. Then there is just the bragging part: I showed the below video to my 13 year old daughter the other day because she was talking up the Audi super cars (fast and expensive draws her attention).

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
