CODE BROWN! I’m going to need a change of shorts over here, please.
When navigating the infamous Tail of the Dragon, one must exercise a little caution. Blind bends and off-camber turns dot the eleven-mile stretch of country road in Deals Gap, North Carolina, and too much gusto can lead to a very costly incident.
Even more the case if the car one’s driving is the pinnacle of Porsche customization. Fortunately, this Singer driver’s bit of lockup only leads to a trip onto the shoulder, but you can imagine his nerves as the plumes of grey smoke spat from the wheel wells and that hillside approached. Had it been worse, he would’ve been kicking himself in a best-case scenario, especially since the typical cost of a Singer is around the $500,000-mark.
Despite the brief excursion into the gravel,the man continues boldly on his jaunt. Clearly, these cars stir something primal in a driver and get them to charge in a way that a sober man wouldn’t—especially one not interested in parking a half-million dollars in a ravine.
