The qualifying track records at Sears Point, Laguna Seca and Thunder Hill have been held by this car for years. If not this exact car then another of porters DB6's.
Pretty cost effective way to win I'd say.
I had Porter clone one for me back in 2002 and then I sold it to John Robinson and he won the run-offs with it.
I saw this car a few weeks ago, i was planning on buying it with my lottery winnings from Friday night... oh well that's not going to happen. This is a really nice car and would be a front runner for anyone. I wish i could get it
Hi - Yes 6' 2" should be no problem. We had a driver that was 6' 4" and we got him to fit. Swift DB1,DB3, and DB6's have a diagonal bar from above the drivers shoulder down to the base of the front roll hoop that presses against the back side of the drivers arms making steering and the 3rd/4th gear shift more difficult. Our cars have that tube cut out and replaced with a thicker tube that is "bent" out which makes steering and shifting much easier.
See pictures. Neil
It's 9 years since I sold my DB6 so I'm a little hazy on it but the DB6 has a different shock placement or something that makes it more comfy than a DB1.
As I recall your shins suffer in a DB1 but not the DB6.
I was 250 @5'9" with a 42 waist and once that bar was widened I was OK in the car. I have very wide shoulders which was the hardest part.
I can think of a few 6 foot guys that have driven these cars.
I guess Porter is too busy growing pistachios to keep up with his ad. I reckon JR2 is Robinson and he won runoffs twice in a DB6 but see below:
Dateline; Homestead Florida. Sunday, September 16, 2012
Jim Morgan, driving a seriously wore-out 1991 Swift DB6-jl, soundly defeated JR2 in the penultimate race leading up to the SARRC Invitational Championships. JR2 was driving his brand new 2012 Piper/Honda on fresh tires.
To rub salt in the wound, Morgan was using the tires JR2 had used up at the pro race at VIR over a year and a half ago. Jim said on the podium, in between swallows of bubbly, " I knew those fantastic 24 cycle Hoosiers would not let me down, they held air all last night." Morgan thanked his son Cole (2007 F2kCS Champion) for being stationed in Germany and not being around to bother him with gibberish of proper lines and braking points. While on the podium the elder statesman of Morgan Homes Racing thanked James Lee, Charles Finelli, and Robert Mondovi.
