Here are a couple of videos from yesterday.

Porsche Turbo AWD and Ultima GTR: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dr-digitalrendition/8...

Modified Z06 Corvette and Ultima GTR: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dr-digitalrendition/8...

This was a first annual event. Looking foward to next year.

By the way, My Ultima has a stock LS6, 380 RWHP. The light weight and aerodynamics help the car runs similar trap speeds as 3400lbs turbo cars with 600-650 RWHP.

It looked like the 911 was catching you towards the end of the run but you must have had a very impressive launch as a 911 turbo is quick off the line.

The Corvette looked an even match once he got going.

Great to see an Ultima being given the gun and make a good impression. Well done.

Actually, the Porsche was AWD. I think a 996. I dont know them well. The driver told me later it took time to get the turbo spun up so that is why he had a slow start.

I was wrong. You blew him into the weeds.

I wish we had that sort of laid back place in the UK, especially in those fantastic surroundings. Noise is a big issue here so this sort of event is rare. Bruntingthorpe is about the only venue.

Thanks for the link. That red Vette looked quick along with the white Nissan? with a whopping turbo.
