Video: 911 full‑throttle at Road America
At least we can get some idea with this epic onboard courtesy of our friends over at Historic Sportscar Racing. Climb behind the wheel of the Green Bean as the driver Brady Refenneing hustles it around Road America.

Watch the metrics as Refenneing cuts a fast line around the four-mile, 14-turn circuit during the 35th edition of the Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival, over a weekend in late September 2020.
