Airstrip attack racing has exploded in popularity in recent years, helping it become one of the most popular modern motorsports. Combining a stationary start with the crazy speeds of a half-mile drag race, airstrip attack racing pushes both man and machine to the very edge.
A 507-horsepowered C63 AMG Black Series may seem like a sufficient performance car, but the brains at Weistec Engineering feel otherwise, taking their Shift-S3ctor Airstrip Attack 7 to almost 800 horsepower.
The Global Time Attack ProAm series with Shift-S3ctor concluded Saturday (Oct. 19th, 2013) at Willow Springs International Raceway in Rosamond, California. Suitably named “The Fastest Road in the West,” the Big Willow track consists of many long, fast, sweeping turns and a high-speed front straight, making it the perfect venue for the finale.
