There are many things to love about the Rennsport Reunion. Stacks of beautiful Porsche metal, the chance to meet racing legends face to face and the sound of historic race cars barking at the paddock walls all make for an experience unlike any other. But for us, the best part is watching those vintage racers take to a track like Laguna Seca in anger. This year, Mark Hotchkis hopped behind the wheel of the Hotchkis Porsche 962 for a few quick laps on the renowned road circuit once again. He wasn't there for a leisurely Sunday drive.

Hotchkis wasted no time slicing through traffic and generally consuming tarmac like only a properly-wielded 962 can. The Replay XD guys were kind enough to strap a few dozen cameras to the car to give us an idea of the action from every angle, and the result is pretty entertaining way to blow four minutes and change. Hit the jump to check it out for yourself.

      Ah, the 962. The most dominant car in sportscar racing history. These cars were devastatingly fast, not to mention reliable. My favorite endurance racer of all time. Would love to pilot or even ride in one.

      Can you imagine they made a few road legal 962's? And they are even more powerful. This is just madness! I want one sooooo bad!

        Dauer 962 Le Mans, Veyron-like performance in 1994 :

      Man, that thing is fast. It's barely breathing hard and blowing past all that newer metal. Was that another 962 get squirley right in front of him right after turn 5? Yikes - he didn't even lift.

      OMG 962s were unstoppable during their hey-day!!!!

      awesome video...and a nice save by the guy in front of him at 3:40 haha o.O
        • 3 Years Ago
        I love how the guy in the video following him did not back off one 1% even though that guy had the potential to lose it completely in front of him. 2:40 mark was also awesome, if you notice the GT3 or whatever it was thought "Oh he passed me, I can hang on the brakes" and then locks up and almost doesn't make the turn.

      The 962 was screaming to every porsche it passed "Who's Your Daddy"!

      As dominant as they were, there ultimate undoing came from the Nissan Prototypes. These cars unrestricted could match the v12 turbo 917 of the Can-Am era. Still nothing matches their dominance going back to the 956, perhaps only Audi's recent success. Love it!

      These aren't real races.

      That was just a poorly edited ad for Replay.

      Sick how much more power those old prototypes had... IMO, the regulaters for our modern day cars should start focusing more on aero than on engine output to control speeds...

        @Jonathan Arena
        That would be a very stupid decision. It would be reduced to a Nascar race with right turns.
          • 3 Years Ago
          There's plenty of motorsports out there that regulate aero bits for safety other than NASCAR...

      I love how it eats up the newer LMP cars. When I think of endurance racing I think of the 962. That wastegate noise is pretty awesome as well. Vrrooooooooooooom whoooo Vrooooooooooooooom whooo

      at the beginning of the video the Hans device is clearly shown on the helmet and at .34th second you can see it on the driver....
        • 3 Years Ago
        Take a closer look - the restraint tethers connected to his helmet are reaching back to the HANS collar. It may be hard to see the carbon fiber collar as it rides beneath the shoulder straps on his 5 point belt system
