I'm kinda glad you took out the audio of Chris and I chit-chatting. :-) I still want to see the original video. I'm don't remember what we were saying that you thought was so funny. : Happy motoring,
: Alex Martinez.
: Happy motoring,
First let me bring the others up-to-speed about what you are talking about..... Chris was riding shotgun with Alex as we were going through some of the twisty stuff around Brevard North Carolina.
Since I was leading the group I knew video shot from my car would be kind of boring compared to what Chris could do with a bunch of Z3s zig zagging in front of him.
What Chris and Alex forgot is that a Camcorder also records sound. So when I replayed the video I got to hear Chris coach Alex and give him advice as they were negotiating the various very tight turns. You could tell from the conversation that at times things were getting a little more serious and Chris starting holding on a little tighter, but you could also tell that these guys were having fun and learning just how good the Z3 is under those circumstances.
It was obvious from listing to the conversation that these guys were having fun. However there were some pretty funny parts of the conversation that made me laugh. I'll condense some the good parts, but if I remember correctly here is some of what was recorded....
"Oh Shit, Oh Shit, Oh Shit..... Okay, okay, your okay.... here comes another one.... damn that one was tight..... I wish Larry wouldn't get so close.... Don't worry about Larry worry about this next turn.... Where is Robert?.... don't worry about Robert worry about this next turn... Damn, I swear we just did a circle (laugh).... Maybe you should put your brights on so we can see the turn better.... Feel free to use both lanes if you need to.... The bigger the yellow sign the more you need to slow down.... how about a bunch of small yellow signs?.... Yea, I guess the amount of yellow in total (laugh)"
I think everyone in my group really enjoyed the mountain run. We went through Highlands in the daylight, saw the sun set on the way to Brevard, and made the final downhill super twisty run in the dark.
