My Drag with a Modified BMW M5

This was at Cold Lake Race the Base 2012 weekend. In car video. Car was an Aston Martin DB9. Sound is poor due to top being down. This is the speed drag between my DB9 and the modified M5. By the end of the 2 mile run he had passed me significantly but it took him 3/4 of a mile to catch me from the standing start. He looked good in my rear view mirror. I topped out at 275kph but my car was 500 lbs heavier.

My Drag with a Modified BMW M6

This was at Cold Lake Race the Base 2012 weekend. In car video. Car was an Aston Martin DB9. Sound is poor due to top being down. This is the speed drag between my DB9 and the modified M6. By the end of the 1 mile mark (the timing gates) he had passed me significantly but it took him 1/2 of a mile to catch me from the standing start. He had a better start than the M5 so I did not see him in my rear view mirror like the M5. Ufortunatly he let off right after the 1 mile mark and did not do the full run, probably because of his weak brakes (he went off the end of the runway the day before and hit a light). I topped out at 275kph Note that my car was 700 lbs heavier.

My Drag with a Ferrari Italia 458

This was at Cold Lake Race the Base 2012 weekend. In car video. Car was an Aston Martin DB9. Sound is poor due to top being down. This is the speed drag between my DB9 and the Ferrari 458. By the end of the 1 mile mark (the timing gates) he had passed me significantly and I was already up to 250kph, but it took him 1/4 of a mile to pass me from the standing start and we were already up to 150kph. I topped out at 280kph Note that my car was 1300 lbs heavier.

My Hi Speed Run Topping out at 292 kph

This was at Cold Lake Race the Base 2012 weekend. In car video. Car was an Aston Martin DB9. Sound is poor due to top being down. This was my last speed run of the weekend and the speedometer topping out at 282 kph, later I found out that my speedometer was reading over 10 kph slow which put my final speed over 292 kph.
