2018 Rennsport Reunion VI - Gmund Cup Race Video & Pictures

#1 Post by Andrew Larson » Mon Oct 29, 2018 12:49 am

I didn’t see any posts, so I thought I would share an in car video from the Rennsport Gmund Cup, and a few pictures. If anyone else has any videos or pictures, please post!

Final race video with 4 camera shots combined:
https://vimeo.com/297228690. I think it is fun to see the rear facing shots of all the action going on behind that I can’t see! Video courtesy of Rennfilms.com

Straight shifters are legal? What kind of transmission do you use?

That is not sequential, it is just an aftermarket shifter with closer gates.

Here is a picture from Rennsport VI and the Gmund Cup. I have a lot more to add, but they are all over 2mb, so having a problem adding them.

The third picture above shows Vic performing a major "peek". I'm sure Vic would never break a rule BUT if the green is not out he should have gotten a black flag. Of course he would say he was just pushing the rules a little or he might say, I've started over 800 races and if you aren't trying to get an advantage at the start you are a fool. Vic ain't no fool!
