      Take note, I think the STi has a terrible engine for track duty. I am quoted in OP's post #1 about my thoughts on this. But I have never in my 10 years of HPDE seen an MK4 R32 in an advanced group...

      Did nobody else see the Citroen 2CV on track with the Porsche and other cars at 1:17? Seems like a track day that happens to run 12 hours.

      I read this before I clicked the link. I was expecting crack-pipe pricing. How is this still for sale at $3200? How much are LS's going for these days. Way too much awesome for a low low price.
