Half-Mile Pikes Peak – 1100HP Twin Turbo Ford GT

July 12th, 2019

Just hanging out at the 2019 Shift S3CTOR Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack, TRC ran across this low-slung Ford GT owned by the Christmas Family. Campaigned by the sibling team of Alexandria and Coy Christmas, this is one of the most stunning and powerful cars on any track. Alexandria currently holds the prestigious honor of being considered the “Fastest Half-Mile Woman in the World”.

Built by Top Speed Motorsports (Alpharetta, GA), the beautiful Canary Yellow Ford GT featured in this video is powered by a virtually stock (block and heads) 5.4-liter engine built by Jon Kaase Race Engines (Winder, GA). A Heffner twin turbocharger kit, MoTec M150 controller, Injector Dynamics 1,000cc injectors (2 per cylinder) and race fuel help to boost performance into orbit.

In Day 2 of qualifying, Alex ran a 167.72 mph pass. Not a bad way to get started. Later in the day, she ran a new personal best top speed of 179 mph in a solo pass.

Overall, Top Speed Motorsports and the Christmas family of car enthusiasts had a very good showing at the Colorado Springs Airstrip.
