Chuck,
BTW - it looks like we were at the Ring (Sept 12th) while Dodge was running laps with a couple vipers. At the time we didn't understand what they were doing....but my Dad found this story.

Dodge Viper lays claim to Nürburgring record with 7:12 run

At least this explains why the Tourist Laps were "removed" on the 12th. Luckily, we filmed both vipers (at various points) running these laps. God!!! I really need to dig into my footage and do some editing...and post it to YouTube. Stay tuned!!!
