RAUH-Welt @ Idler's 12hr+9min Enduro Race

I've been sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for official results of the Idlers Games 12hr+9min Endurance Race before I posted up what I thought about the race but so far there just hasn't been anything released. So I think I'll just have to trudge on now and come back after I get some official results. I was actually surprised at how little news and information has been released to date for the RWB Crew considering how much stuff came out at the last Idler's Games event. In any case this is my take on one hell of a day of racing.

My Favorite Carrera -- Itasha

It's no secret that one of my favorite manga series is a Porsche themed story about a lady and her 911 Carrera RS called My Favorite Carrera also known as Kanojo no Carrera (彼女のカレラ) and I have blogged about the manga series on my anime themed blog before.  You can read about that here -- My Favorite Carrera.  Normally I wouldn't mix the two blogs but when the Idlers Games 12h+9min enduro race rolled around I couldn't help myself when an Itasha BMW decked out in Kanojo no Carrera vinyls made it's appearance.

2012 Porsche 911 (991) Teaser

There has been a lot of rumors and speculations floating about the interwebs about what new and awesome things the new Porsche 911 (model #991) will be sporting when it is finally unveiled in a few more months when the new car hits the stage of the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.  There have been a few official releases of little bits of information and I've not really paid much attention to those release just because I want to see the whole picture later this year.  But then Porsche goes and does something interesting this week.

NocternoX -- July 16, 2011

Remember how I said at the beginning of the autocross season that I wasn't going to attend the NocternoX events due to work and other commitments that I was involved with?  Well guess what, thanks to my roommate telling me that I had to be there to film one of the members getting an award at this week's event during the driver's meeting I ended up attending the now only NocternoX of the season (more on that later) at least until I had to leave for my friend's birthday party.  Little did I know what was to come.

2011 Northwest Motorfest

Hit up the annual Northwest Motorfest early in the morning on Saturday this last weekend.  Walked around took some pictures and thanks to a pair of Porsche 911 cars I did actually enjoy myself.  Billed as the biggest car show in Idaho the Northwest Motorfest is held on the grass at Expo Idaho and it was a bright and sunny morning for some good photos.

Porsche 911 Turbo S China Edition

Just when I thought Porsche was done releasing new 997 models of the Porsche 911 some time ago they pulled another one out of their hats for the 10th anniversary of Porsche's presence in China.  The latest and so far last 997 edition of the 911 is a very limited production run of some specially equipped 911 Turbo S models.

RAUH-Welt Featured in Super Street

Thanks to Facebook I found out that RAUH-Welt Begriff was going to have a feature in the August 2011 issue of Super Street (explains the Super Street vinyls on "Tunerhaus" at the latest Idlers Game).  The issue came out on Tuesday and I was able to find it at Wally World this morning.

Porsche Returns to LeMans in 2014

Oh yeah Porsche has announced that it will return to the top tear of racing.  In 2014 Porsche will be entering an all new LMP1 class car at LeMans.  As a Porsche fan who has loved and followed their racing career I can't help but to be excited to see a new Porsche LMP1 car running at LeMans.  But damn 2014 us sooooo far away.
