Cool Airstrip Attack: ESS VT650 Arkym Supercharged BMW M3 vs. Alpha 6 GT-R (Runway Race)

Airstrip Attack: ESS VT650 Arkym Supercharged BMW M3 vs. Alpha 6 GT-R (Runway Race)

COMMENTS

BIMMERPOST sponsored this past weekend's Airstrip Attack, a runway shootout race event held at the Trona Airport near Death Valley, California. The event saw some of the most powerful European, Domestic, and Japanese cars from California go head-to-head on a half mile stretch of tarmac. The classes ranged from 400hp+ all the way to 1000hp+.

The following race featured an ESS VT650 Arkym Supercharged BMW M3 vs. Alpha 6 Nissan GT-R. Check out the result.

We'll be posting many more shootout videos from the event, so stay tuned to our homepage for updates. Many thanks to DLSJ5 (Drew) for preparing the videos so quickly for us.

Impressive!

Alpha 6 best run with that setup is 10.6@130mph in the 1/4.

This must be one of the only guys in the world to buy an alpha 6 package. If it even is one, and not just and exhaust and tune.. Alpha 9 would be more $ per $ for the mods.

The GTR's major advantage was taken away by the rolling start. Nice video none the less!
