Some scenes don't, others do. The sound that thing makes echoing off the houses is nuts.

Yeah, I tried watching it, but without any sound it drove me nuts.

They would have been better served to have someone make a car music video out of it so it could fill the silent spots.

Love it, but it bothers me a tad that the "record" is only because Subaru for the past 2 years is the only vehicle allowed on the race route. It's not like all the manufacturers have the opportunity to run there like they can on the 'Ring. So they will basically hold "the record" until another car company is a partner/sponsor and allowed to run the course. Still cool, though...
