Well, I'm usually not one to brag, but I took the win in my SLK-230. My competition was all AMGs except one. Even the 600HP V-12 SL-65 was slower [although not by much!]. Goes to show you, driving skills can overcome a lack of power on these types of courses.

Congrats. I love the looks of the SL65, but its by no means nimble. Still an impressive result!

Nice to see other SLKs in action. I've love to do something like this myself but I'd prefer a road course over the parking lot.
