Bigger, stronger, faster, louder: this is the only way that we can describe last weekend’s fifth chapter of Shift-S3ctor’s Airstrip Attack in Coalinga, California. One sold-out event, one half mile, two days, and eighty degrees in the middle of the desert. Completely booked Best Western. Two hundred drivers. Twenty-two world-class sponsors. Seven hundred spectators. Fifty media personnel. An average of fourteen hundred horsepower. One hundred seventy mph average trap speeds, and one three-way twerk team. Records were broken, engines were blown, heads were lifted, and GTRs were flipped. This is the event known as Shift-S3ctor’s Airstrip Attack. This is an event you cannot miss.
Shift-S3ctor and Revvolution, in conjunction with the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC), are proud to announce the first event of its kind, the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack, at the Colorado Springs Airport June 27th and 28th, 2014 as part of Pikes Peak Speedweek. Check out the official press release.
With last week’s conclusion of Shift-S3ctor’s Airstrip Attack, one of our favorite events, we’ve seen (and continue to uncover) a ton of high-grade media come out of the woodwork. It’s refreshing to experience so many photographic styles surface from a single event. The social channels are flooded with everything from lifestyle shots to postproduction-intensive vehicle features to detail-oriented product lineups, and we cannot get enough of it. Kudos to all the photographers and videographers who were “working” to help cover the event in the light it deserves. In the spirit of mixing it up, this week’s Top 10 Automotive Media will focus solely on our favorite images from before, during, and after California’s only half-mile, high-speed, side-by-side rolling race.
When Shift-S3ctor created their very first Airstrip Attack in October 2011, the theory was simple—provide a safe, legal, and competitive atmosphere where they could push their vehicles and themselves to the limit. Throughout the past three years, this event has grown by unsurpassed proportions. What once was a gathering of friends has snowballed into an event that attracts some of the most important names in the automotive performance industry. To many, Shift-S3ctor’s Airstrip Attack has become a proving ground to assert their dominance and to establish or reaffirm their place in this industry. Check out our coverage from the October 2013 Airstrip Attack event.
