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.
OB Prestige Auto's 2,000+ horsepower Gallardo Superleggera just dominated Shift-S3ctor's Airstrip Attack 7 (be sure to check out our official coverage) by blasting a scorching 229.1 mph half-mile run (read: soon after this video was published, they set two consecutive passes, each besting this trap speed; more on that later).
As the last event of the year, the two-day Shift-S3ctor Airstrip Attack 7 by Diamonds by Wire and OB Prestige went out with a bang by hosting the most powerful and record-setting half-mile drag we've seen to date. To give you an idea of how hot this event is, the total attendance was tallied at 1,500 over the course of both days with 240 participants. That's 120 of the fastest and most powerful street cars in the nation running each day. Saturday sold out in only 15 minutes, and Sunday was sold out in 24 hours. Ridiculous.
Back in the day, Scotty was a die-hard street racer who always had an affinity for the older, two-door GC body style. He'd shared co-driving duties in a friend's GC rally car, and that experience made him realize how strong the Subaru chassis was. However, he liked the RS's factory look so much that his own car remained stock for a year after he bought it.
The Z06 and GT-R couldn’t be more wildly different. However, both offer similar performance for a similar price. Which would you choose?
