    Exotics runway event Wallkill NY May 4 Sunday

    My car club runs two of these per year on a private airstrip about an hour north of NYC. We have about a half mile of runway set up for 1/4 mile runs either solo or against anyone else you fancy that is participating. We will have about 50 exotics (lambos,Ferraris,McClarens GTRs as well as one off race cars.) 100 bucks gets you unlimited runs plus breakfast and lunch at the nice little restaurant overlooking the field. The event runs from 9 till 4 with a break for lunch. You can see a few videos in the thread " any one know which exhaust this is" one is very nice and professional. And yes we will have the same flag girl as well as her twin! Any way pm me as I have to get you an invite to participate. It's always a blast

    OK here are a few pics from the runway. I ran my Z8 about a dozen times down the track, some solo and some racing other vehicles. I put up a good fight but racing against other cars with 400 to 600 horsepower plus launch control and/or AWD put me at a slight disadvantage. I rode in a friends GTR putting out 1100 HP and let me tell you doing over 150 MPH at the quarter mile is quite an experiance!

    We had no timing mechanism but looking down at my trap speed at the quarter mile I was doing about 116. Pretty good for a 12 year old car. I will post more pics later today if I get a chance. In total we had about 65 cars. The fastest were 4 GTRs all putting out around 900 to 1100 hp depending on boost and gas choice. The Aventadors were also close with around 700 hp. Another friend had a special built ultima GT constructed on a ford gt chasis (700 hp in a 2100 lb car, think of that power to weight ratio for a minute ) he was not quite as fast as the GTRs due to no AWD but was close.
    We ran from 9 am till 4 pm with an hour off for lunch. Just a great day
