A classic battle at Laguna Seca that will never get old

There is nothing more stimulating that to watch two racers; two cars battle it out for first place on the track. Just watching two cars fighting bumper to bumper and maneuvering at high speeds is enough to keep you on the edge of your seat, but to watch it go on in the final laps is absolutely amazing. With that in mind, I invite you to watch this throwback video from Laguna Seca, where a Porsche and a Corvette have one of the best on-track duels I have ever seen.

Just the skill of the drivers alone is enough to keep you on the edge of your seat, but the hairsplitting maneuvers performed by each to gain an advantage over the other is just astounding. Unfortunately, the result comes in the form of only one car finishing, but you’ll have to watch the video for yourself to find out which car (if you don’t remember.) One thing is for sure, there had to be some pretty serious confrontations in the pit once everything was said and done.

Go ahead and click the play button and watch the 10-minute video for yourself. Make sure you’re not holding anything important in your hands. After just a couple minutes, you’ll be so into the video that anything you’re holding might get squeezed a bit. Once you’ve watched the video in its entirety, do you think someone played dirty or was that move at the finish line acceptable? I look forward to your response in the comments below.

Robert has been an auto enthusiast his entire life. He started working cars at a young age, learning the basics from his father in the home garage on the weekends. As time went on, Robert became more and more interested in cars and convinced his father to teach him how to drive when he was just 13 years old. Robert continued working on cars in his free time and learned as much as he could about engines, transmissions, and car electrical systems, something that only fed his curiosity more and eventually led him to earn a bachelors degree in automotive technology with a primary focus on engine performance and transmission rebuilding.  Read More
