Rain Mixes Up The Supercar and Road Racer Shootouts – Who Was Fastest?
Changeable conditions posed varying challenges to different driver’s in yesterday’s Supercar and Race Cars For The Road Shootouts. Some runs were wetter than others, so the playing field wasn’t quite level.
Four-wheel-drive was clearly an advantage in the Supercar Shootout, with Paul Rees crossing the line in the fastest time at the wheel of the Porsche 911 Turbo S. He completed the 1.16-mile hillclimb in 57.63 second, crossing the line at 108.5mph. Similarly all-wheel-drive was Jan Mardenbrorugh’s Nissan GT-R, which trailed by a mere 1.13 seconds, hitting 106.3mph across the line.
The fastest two-wheel-drive car took a podium place. Ciaron Haggerty pedalled the McLaren 570S Sprint up the hill in 62.18 seconds, at 100.4mph across the line.
The rest of the field was no less dramatic, including the likes of the McLaren P1 GTR, Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge and the new Jaguar F-Type SVR.
