Jeff Zwart Pikes Peak Porsche 911 GT3
Jeff Zwart shaking down his Pikes Peak Porsche 911 GT3 – Click above to watch video after the jump

There's just something about watching a Porsche 911 play in the dirt that flips all the right switches. Seeing that iconic shape throw rooster tails of silt triggers a sort of Pavlovian response brought on by years of daydreaming over shots of the Rothman 953 slinging sand in Africa. Consider that doubly true for Jeff Zwart's Pikes Peak-winning GT3.

Zwart has just released a video of one of his shake-down runs prior to this year's Pikes Peak event. The course runs up some godforsaken mountain in the middle of the California wilderness, and while Zwart isn't seen flogging the life out of the car, it's more than clear that both he and the machine are in their element.
