MIR 10-30-09 pics galore......new quickest BMW in the US!

Took forever to get these pics even downloaded and resized. I have done 0 editing to them as I simply dont have the time.

Was a FANTASTIC event last Friday. Got to see several new records and some very serious cars hitting the 6's and 7's without breaking a sweat.

Donovan in his black e30 smashed the US record for a BMW by a half a second...which is huge. That was an epic run with a 1.41 short time!!!!


His car launching like a scaulded cat



his epic timeslip....check the nails, he's earned this time :buttrock




Select others

Beautiful classic 'stang w/ twin turbo's in the trunk!





9 second Magnum! Broke his blower belt several times this day



Twin turbo Viper running in the 7's......so composed and wickedly fast



battle of the AW e92's....M3 close lane 335 far lane





Clay's new sl600....5th fastest recorded on his 1st run! 11.55 at 120mph on all seasons!





funniest looking car there



all motor 540 ci Hemi putting down constant 9.05's at 149mph....I think he ran that time 3 times in a row....very impressive and dialed in



Brand new sl65 snapped his driveshaft on his 1st run......1000lbft will do that for you!



Jamie's new GTR, he didnt bring his new ZR1



A wicked Firebird





2 mustang's owned by the same guy, he's the one in blue. One's a promod and the other is an outlaw



Purging the nitrous



This monster is getting ready for paint....hit high 6's on mid boost :eyecrazy





All the photos (nearly 200) can be found here:

Enjoy

funny you say that!

he blew his tranny at the starting line on one run and didnt stop, dumped tranny fluid the entire freaking 1/4 mile. shut the whole track down for almost 2 hours

bad move on his part.

I like the pic of the broken parts up against the wall. That sums up competetive drag racing IMO Nice pics all the way round. What time did the GTR run?

Lots of quick cars there that day...

I hate to be a party-pooper but 7s and 8s not 7's and 8's. How many times this century have people been making this mistake?

Cool runs
