NASA GTS-3 at Autobahn

Raced this past weekend with NASA Midwest in GTS-3, qualified pole and was leading the whole race till we spun on the last lap. My trans seal broke and we were leaking trans fluid which resulted in my rear tires breaking loose.

Big thank you goes out to VS Motorsports for getting this car finished up in time for the race and with their on track support there is no way we would've qualified first and led the whole race till the end. The car was a blast to drive.



Here is a video:

Looks like a blast, too bad on the spin. If I may ask, was this full, south or north and what were your times? Can't wait to get back out on Autobahn's full circuit, I love it

Was this between turns 12-13, or semewhere else on the course? The video brought back some bad memories, as I hit a tire wall after a spin in the wet coming out of 12 (in my R32), 2 years ago. As others have commented, that was some good luck missing it. I think I saw your car in VS's shop last week (they put a half-cage in my R32), interesting seeing this thread.
