Battle of the SuperCars! - SPEED Channel

Guys,

Do any of you ever watch this show on SPEED? it is great!

Basically, each episode has Paul Tracy and Tanner Faust battling it out in two supercars.

I have a season pass on my DVR and love watching this show. Check out this episode where a modified GT500 (1000 HP) and a modified twin turbo Camaro SS (also 1000 HP) go at it at the Texas Mile in Goliad TX. Here it is on YouTube.

Basically, the GT500 pretty much smokes the Camaro in almost all the segments. This thing is a beast!

Here is part 1.

and this next link is for Part2.

it was sooooo cool to see the GT500 pulling away from the Camaro on the mile marker run! The GT500 was pulling away with ease! a thing of beauty!

What a machine! The GT500 that is!

My 03 did just shy of 170 there at Goliad a couple years ago. The previous owner and close friend of mine took it out there to run the Texas Mile. Not bad for a two ton street car!

That was really cool on the slalom course but I really thought the GT500 did better, he didn't almost spin out like the Camaro. The Shelby driver is a drifter, he should have done a better job..
