0: Out The Gate
About The Starting Gate
- This starts off in the parking lot and then shows me going through the entrance
gate. I’m at the gate a long time because I couldn’t reach to insert
the ticket with my 5-pt harness on. Call me Short.
- The first section is a straightaway-- boring stuff (Antoniusbuche -> Tony’s
book? / Tiergarten -> zoo). You can build up a lot of speed here, but be careful.
It’s hilly, and there’s a sharp right-hander at the end.
- Right before the right-hander, I go over some curbing. That’s the actual
line through that area, not a mistake.
- The clip ends at the old start-finish line. This is where the old Porsche 911
Turbo commercial showed an old man collecting tickets from Porsche engineers
to go onto the track. Well, that was the actual guy on the commercial. And yes,
I’m old enough to have had him collect a ticket or two from me.
