Laguna Seca GT2 finish, fantastic battle at the end

The GT class is very competitive with Porsche and GM dominating. Check out this vid, almost awsome finish with two drivers duking it out.

I don't know about that...Jorg is a tall strapping Germanic boy. Magnussen would have to put in some 'work' on that...

Nothing that a helmet to the balls couldnt solve.

That tap he gave the Porsche was not an illegal move, its just racing! Running someone intentionally into a wall then purposefully "NASCAR'ing" them into the other wall? Hell, not only illegal in ANY sport, but nearly attempted manslaughter. Wayyy to many drivers dont walk away from those big headon hits onto 'rigid' walls like that.

Dude I'm sorry, but you give 'tap', you get 'tap'...if you look REALLY closely at that finishing straight vid you CAN see that Jorg DIDN'T put him INTO the wall, he just put him RIGHT TO the wall. Magnussen, got loose in the marbles off track and put himself INTO the wall.

YOU drive aggressive, shit happens...end of story...

+1. That was a great race. From my view it seems like the vette was faster and the porsche knew it and he was trying to keep his place by blocking the vette but the vette wasn't gonna take no for an answer and kep trying to sqeeze by. Darn good racing imo. Definetly kept me on the edge.Gotta love that illegal pass through the pit also. He really wanted it. That was so exciting that my mom was glued to the screen for the whole thing and she isn't remotely intrested in racing.

Not driving your GTO to keep miles off of it is like not having sex with your girlfriend so her next boyfriend will appreciate it more.

Man, what an exciting 10 minutes. I love good hard racing like that. What a shame it had to end like that. Oh well, just another reason on my long list to hate porsche. If the little German boys thought the Corvettes were tough this year switching over 1/2 way through I have a feeling they're in for a nasty surprise in 2010. Go Vettes!

Porsche driver should get a harsh punishment. I can't just run another car off the track... especailly more than once when they are driving their own line. That win should be srtipped from him. I enjoy a good bump and rub race, but you can't just run the other car off the track. Especially when that other car is faster. Magnussen clearly had the faster car as he put a good 10+ lengths on the porsche after the illegal pass he made.
