Grand National passes Corvette as it wrecks
John N. testing his tricked out Stage 2 Grand National at Thunder Valley Raceway park. His opponent in a Corvette stays in it too long and narrowly misses hitting the GN as it passes by! The GN's build up had recently been completed and this was intended to be a soft pass with only 20# of Boost. The camera person was there to film the car's reaction to the launch for tuning purposes. They were so focused on the GN that they did not notice what was happening to the Corvette until it was over.
BUICK V-8 TURBO NOT V-6, 1/8 Test 8.68@113mph, Reynolds, GA Oct. 2008 (7.50@187mph 1/4 mile).
Check out this super quick BUICK V-8 turbo NOT V-6 on location at Reynolds, GA Silver Dollar Raceway October 2008 Comment from owner: I'm the owner of the car. It was a 401ci small block Chevy with a 94mm turbo. I was only making test passes so I lifted at 1/2 track. 1/8 time was 5.01 at 150mph. It would have ran around 7.50 at 187 on a full pass.
