Travel near 160 mph in a quarter mile

< Completed List

This is one activity that I’d been looking forward to for a long time.  My race car never went as fast or as quick so I knew I was in for a treat.   On our run we covered the quarter mile in 8.12 seconds at 158.5 mph.  And how about that reaction time, 0.003 of a second!

It was an amazing experience and one I recommend to all petrol heads to go and try!


My thanks to Steve Warner (driver), Baron Sharpe (Crew Chief) , John Hackney (Crew), Clive Wagner and Ian Blacket for video and photos.

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible."
