Mile Shootout racing is coming to the West coast!
That’s right – standing-start, flat out speed, as fast as you can go in ONE MILE! In conjunction with the Mojave Air and Space Port, a private airfield in Mojave, CA, we will host the first ever Mojave Mile Shootout event on March 6, 2010. This facility features a 12,000’ runway which will allow for very fast speeds (250+ mph) and a comfortable braking margin. Since Mile Shootout racing is already very popular in Texas, the Midwest, and the East Coast, we look forward to being the premiere site for Mile Shootouts in the West! While the premiere of the Mojave Mile is scheduled to be a one-day event, future events will be 2-3 days long and will attract up to 300 participants!
The Mojave Mile will be open to both cars and motorcycles, and, as the event grows in popularity, is forecasted to be held multiple times per year. Mark your calendar to attend one of the most exciting new racing venues in the country!
It just so happens we have a 510.7whp/552.8 lb-ft of torque Lexus IS F (March '10 "Power Pages") at our disposal, along with three ready and willing drivers, and sister magazine eurotuner is already calling us out, via threats of a supposed 220mph Golf (yes, it is laughable, we know...)
We'll need time to fab up a roll cage to do this right, and our friends over at Mojave Mile tell us there'll be more events as the season develops. We'll be at the March 6th event to eye the competition ... and subsequent events to destroy them, whilst rocking out to our 14-speaker Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound Audio System, and 5.0L V-8.
See you all there :-)
