I hope some people find it interesting, if not, change threads
During the day, I'm involved with making Subaru's go faster, and this weekend we had our own car racing at a competition called "Ten of the Best".
The competition is for teams of 10 cars of the same make, competing for points as both a team, and individuals, in three events, drag race, top speed over 1k, and a handling course.
There are 3 main teams, Mitsubishi Evo's, Nissan Skylines/GTR's, and the Subaru's, with other cars/teams adding up to about 100 + competitors. You get anything from a tuned up Corsa, Porsche, to American V8's.
The Subaru team won it last year, with my car taking the overall title, and this year the Subaru team won again, with my car coming second overall, to another Subaru that I part sponsor with our engine parts.
Andy (overall winner), in the Blue/white Subaru runs a 3.6lt 6 cyl engine with over 1000bhp. Drag time on the day 8.77 seconds @ 169mph. Top speed in the kilometre 202.4mph !!!
My car, nick named the "Banana" for obvious reasons, is a 2.35lt 4 cyl engine, that we estimate at circa 900bhp (until we get a chance to dyno test it) ran 8.95 @ 168mph, and achieved 194.8mph top speed in the kilometre.
These are not just "drag" cars, both were in the top ten for handling too, coming 4th, and 7th.
Hope they're of interest
