Contrast in Style and Equipment

Below we saw what a National Champion autocrosser looks like driving a SS Corvette. Now let's examine another past National Champion driving a completely different type of car also in the same Super Stock class: The Lotus Elise
Here, again at the 2005 Washington DC stop of the SCCA-Tire Rack National Tour is Mike "Jr." Johnson flogging the pumpkin.
Notice his trick of letting the wheelspin caused by the Elise's lack of a Limited Slip Differential work FOR him, keeping the engine revving in it's narrow power band. At least that's his story...and he's sticking with it!!

Find the clip of Pat Salerno in his C5 Zo6 Corvette here...
