That's Portimao in Portugal. World Superbike races there, but nobody else really above a National series level hits it. Shame there isn't more top-level series interest, as it's a fantastic course.

The ND cup car was added to iracing today. Also, I spotted this in the video. I think Emilio needs to email someone at ohlins :

You know, I've always wondered what XIDA stood for? Is it just a cool name, or does it have an even cooler sinister meaning?

eXperimental Inverted Double Adjustable

The first concept was inverted but we gave up on that as it was impractical for the end user. Name sounded cool though so I kept it. It wasn't until the Xidas had been in production for maybe 6 months that we decided to do a single adjustable and the things went boom!

They have a Auto/Manual shift boot, e-brake, and this arm rest cover.

Fun time out at Streets of Willow. Not my fastest lap, this was later in the day when we were doing three drivers back-to-back-to-back so the car was heatsoaked and tires were getting squirmy.

It's a very cool experience to see things through from the infancy stage of designs on paper to prototypes, testing, revisions, finished products, and in the end to be out there putting in hot laps in the car on those parts. It's something really only possible in a relatively small close-knit operation such as ours that doesn't have to compartmentalize each various stage, and it is really rewarding.

Plus, it's just stinkin' fun to get out there on a racetrack with the top down and drive.

As others have said it´s Portimão Circuit ! It was built to receive Formula 1, however that will never happen in anytime soon. So right now is always used for car presentations (due to the great weather that lasts almost the entire year) and national and European races !

That would be my new DD. I test drove an ND right after they came out and the storage is just too little, but I bet that would be solved with that bad boy!

I'd be all over a coupe/shooting brake ND...reminds me of a more sexy Z3 M Coupe or Z4 M Coupe (one of my favorite cars).

Not a fan of removable hardtops, but a nice coupe or retractable hardtop is sweet. But mostly I think the car in the photo above is stunning in a way the FRS/BRZ can't touch.

Can anyone weigh in on the OEM ND LSD vs something like an OS Giken?

Trying to decide between Sport and Club trims...
