Drove a 991.1 GT3

Did a groupon with a buddy in which you drive a 991.1 GT3 around a auto-x course* You get 4 laps with a dude sitting next to you. It was actually more fun then I expected.

As for driving the GT3, seemed to live up the hype on my brief spin. Way more throttle adjustable then my turbo which I guess should be expected(rwd vs awd). Actually seems pretty challenging to keep the rear in check.

I left it in 2nd for the auto-x but the co-driver up shifted for me to 3rd at one time. I didn't see the RPM but I am pretty sure I had some left and he was "protecting" the car. Make me question wanting a manual one since it rips through the gears so fast.

Anyways pretty nice and my buddy is now looking for used one.(Was sort of before though)
