NORC 150 MPH Class Team Hall & Nass Z06 ORR May 2012 Full Course Run
The Mission - Drive down 90 miles of two lane blacktop on a closed public
highway, breaking the light beam on the other end at as close to a perfect
150 MPH average in 36 Minutes FLAT as humanly possible.
The following is the Motorama LIVE Team Hall & Nass Corvette Z06 Open Road
Racing in the 150 MPH Class at the Nevada Open Road Challenge (NORC) on
Nevada Highway NV 318, May 20th, 2012. This is the Spring race, which is an
exact replica of the Silver State Classic Challenge (SSCC) that runs every
PLEASE NOTE - Our race grid footage was chopped off to allow this video to
begin at the true exact zeroing '0' of the SSCC atomic timing and scoring
clock on professional editing software. This video shows our entire run in
all of its raw, unedited glory, then continues on less than a minute after
the finish line as we say our recorded time aloud and exchange high fives.
So sit back and enjoy 36 minutes of LS7 singing along two lane blacktop for
90 miles in an attempt to average a perfect 150 MPH average speed in 36
minutes flat on NV 318.
Additional information on this run:
As stated above, the goal in the 150 MPH Class at NORC and SSCC is to run
the 90 mile course on NV 318 in 36 minutes flat at a perfect 150 MPH
average. This is time/speed/distance racing on an uber scale.
The Result - Silver State Classic Challenge official timing and scoring
listed our run as 36:00.5473 seconds at an average speed of 149.9620 MPH.
What is interesting is that our clocks (and the one on this video) show us
as running it in 35:59.88 seconds at just a tick over 150 MPH. Ironically,
note that IF our time of .12 of a second off of perfect had been recognized
as our official scoring time, it still would have only been good enough for
3rd place out of the 14 entrants in the 150 MPH Class, as the winning time
was a 35:59.0164. Yes, the competition in the 150 MPH Class is THAT tight!
However, SSCC official time puts us in 6th place overall in the 150 MPH
This video just goes to show that no matter how good YOU may think you are
in time/speed/distance Open Road Racing, the fact remains that in the end,
you are ONLY as good as someone else's timing system in the official record
books. Like it or not, sometimes, those are just the breaks in ORR.
We race because we love the speed, the people and the cars. The love of the
sport is our friend, even if sometimes, the timing clocks are not.
We'll be back ...
