Yesterday, I asked you to take a ride around Virginia International Raceway with me in the 2013 Shelby GT500. What I didn’t mention was that I had a brief dice with world-famous instructor and VIR hotshoe extraordinaire Peter Krause in his Sports 2000 racer.

Not wanting to lose to a VIR legend without a fight, I blocked him through 11, dumped him on the back straight, then finally had to let him by in Turn Three. It’s not my fault; I might run a 2:10 in the big bruiser Mustang, but Mr. Krause runs 2:02 in his actual race car. Check out a 2:10 lap with him. Although he only hits 125mph where I was hitting 168, and his car loses speed up the Esses, in the beginning and end of the track it’s simply magical. If you want to drive like this, give him a shout.
