6 Hours of Curitiba

Yesterday we had here in Curitiba, an endurance race, the 6 Hours of Curitiba...
Were racing 3 Porsche GT3 RS, 1 DTM Mercedes CLK, some national prototypes, and modified road cars...
It was a great race!!! fast cars, lots of overtakings....
and the best was the sound of the Porsche engines... when the cars got the other side of the track, the only sound we heard was the porsche´s one...
the surprise was the quickness of the DTM mercedes... until it retired with gear problems, it took 2 laps on all cars, except the 2nd position, a MCR prototype...

Tomorrow, I show you some photos of the race, and if you want, I tell more details of the race, and the porsches...

but the best of all is that the two finishing porsches stayed behind a prototype during entire race... and got only second and third places...
