Actually, Terry Rossi claimed a 1:29, but I think it was from a stopwatch, or something. His best 'official' time was a 130.3. Still, that's pretty great, for a car running on 275 street (not R Compound) tires.

John Dearing has run 1:30's in his Viper before, on street tires, but could only manage 1:31's on this visit.

I had three 1:32's, but nothing lower.

Dave's 914-6 was beating on everyone else, including the other Vipers and Vettes. Never underestimate driver skill, or the light weight and ideal balance of a mid-engine car.
