Watch a Cayman GT4 taunt a Huracan Performante at the Nurburgring
Cayman GT4 starts to catch up at 3:30 into the video. The battle starts shortly after that.
To say I'm competitive would be an understatement. Most of my friends know this. One time, I took my phone out before a track session and took a picture of one of my friend's tires in case I need to settle an argument later... You see, I was driving a new Focus RS on the option Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and he was driving a 4th generation WRX STI on BFG g-Force R1 tires. If you're not familiar with either, those BFG tires have a much more aggressive compound and the tread pattern (or lack thereof) is much more track oriented as you can see below.
With that said, if there's only one thing I care more about above all else while I'm on a track, it's track safety. I want to drive home with no damage to the car or injury to myself and I want to see everyone else out there drive home the same way. While I admire the Cayman GT4 driver's ability to catch up and (eventually) pass a Huracan Performante, I think he made a big mistake by refusing the pass the first time because that only puts pressure on the Huracan driver. Pressure often results in mistakes and mistakes can result in a crash.
Do you think the Cayman GT4 made a mistake? Make sure to comment below to let me know!
