The shear number of cars at the event was HUGE. It helps to have the gigantic parking lot at COTA. There were probably about three times as many show cars compared to the old C&C in Irvine, CA. This row was Mustang alley. There was a nice GT350 with Procharger putting down over 700whp. The next one over was Camaros and Corvettes and a Caddy CTS-V sporting twin turbos on the V8. The next over was full of Mopar. And the next full of JDM. And the next was EDM. Next of course, there were Ferraris, McLarens, Lambos, etc. Thank you, next. (a little pop culture reference in case you didn’t pick up on it)
The Jeep crew was probably having the most fun. They even set up a sound system blasting music. That little girl was having a ton of fun dancing on the bumper.
The first ever Super Lap Battle USA at COTA is in the books and I think a lot of fun was had by many. Look at the lap times the Unlimited class cars put down compared to full-on pro race cars at COTA…it’s quite impressive. The Texas locals put in a great showing too, using a bit of homefield advantage. Maybe more Evos will show up next year, since they were greatly outnumbered and outrun by Miatas! We have great hopes for this new event and are excited to see it grow. How cool would it be if overseas competitors started making the trip to COTA!?
