New Josh's Car Corner - End of the season drag racing

A new episode of my web series featuring a few G8 owners that I know are forum members here. Most of us set new personal best times this day and it was a lot of fun. Enjoy!

A Memorable Day of Racing

Josh: Very nice compellation! This indeed was a great day of racing. Thanks for including some of those memorable clips. The first race where I was lined up against Joe is especially memorable as it was the first time I ever beat him. The second clip with me in it is also memorable as I was lined up against my son Shawn's Striker Blue G8GT and we both had our all time Personal Best's. He ran a 13.10. I ran a 12.27 @ 114.62 mph (See attached timeslip). This was in street trim with my summer tires. You can add those two PB's to the list you had at the end of the video. Unlike you, I have some work to do this Winter as I still have not hit my goal of breaking into the 11s. Also unlike you, I drive mine in the Winter and so I'm ready for that blustery weather you were talking about; I installed the snow and ice tires. Can't wait for the Spring session of Josh's Car Corner.



Correction: After further review of the footage, the run against my son shown was not the run for our Personal Bests for which the above timeslip documents.
