This is a holiday weekend, so as expected there are marathons as far as the DVR can see. Instead of a newer video, I found this classic BTCC clip from 90' on the same track as Monday's 2011 BTCC Round 4 airing, Oulton Park. Replace the Chevy Cruzes with some Sierra Cosworths on BBS. Mmmm.

For the love of P: Singer Porsche - a quick pictorial revisit

We here at ROTL like to see when a small firm makes good. Sure, these cars are far out of the average man's reach, but the keen eye for detail and insistence on quality (as well as their determination to push forward their vision for the perfect Porsche) is something we all can appreciate. Here are two of their latest. Keep on keepin' on, Singer.

Motorsport Pron: TRG Racing finale

I was pleasantly surprised to see that TRG Racing put this video together after making it to my first ALMS event this past September. Fortunate enough to see their two GTC classed 911 cup cars compete at the BGP, this reminder of where The Racers Group outfit ended up at the end of this season, at the Petit Le Mans, makes me long for the 2012 season that much more. Until then...
