BIMMERPOST once again sponsored the most recent Airstrip Attack taking place on 4/6-4/7, a two day runway shootout race event held at the Coalinga Municipal Airport in Coalinga, California. As in previous events, we saw some of the most powerful European, Domestic, and Japanese cars go head-to-head on a half mile stretch of tarmac. The classes ranged from 400hp+ all the way to 1000hp+
This race features a ESS VT3-750 Supercharged M3 vs Mclaren MP4-12C (with performance upgrade - 616hp). Results in the video.
