Well I saw a "rolling" 50 mph start drag race between a Porsche and Camaro today on Rte 199 this afternoon. Headed up over the overpass of Monticello Ave they got side by side and took off. Surprisingly the Camaro out ran the Porsche by a decent margin by 3 cars I think. I bet they got up to 110 mph in that quarter mile stretch of highway. I got to watch it all go down. As I caught up to the victorious Camaro at Rte 60 I told him good job beating that Porsche.

Was this the smartest thing to do in a county crawling with police everywhere?? Ahh no. Not at all. Also not smart because of the on ramp coming on to 199 at 6pm in the afternoon could of had traffic coming up that ramp and where those guys took off at one could not see if any traffic was coming up that ramp from where they started. I have never seen that kind of activity in a long time.

You can find thousands of rolling races on YouTube. All done on a closed course in "Mexico" of course. wink

Maybe the guy in the Camaro had the 'get out of jail pass'....as a cop.
I doubt that a cop could afford a Porsche

One time while I had my G8GT I had a NASTY CTS-V pull up next to me at a light in rural Indiana. I rolled down my window and asked what he had done (while it was rumpity-rumping :)) and he had cam, full exhaust, blower pulley, tune, Livernois CNC heads, etc. This was when my G8 ran [email protected] When the light went green, I stole the hit (or he was just being nice) and I was about 2 cars out by the time I hit 60. About one “oh [censored] here he comes” later he was out front, and by the time I hit 120 he was literally a full quarter mile out front of me. I have no doubt he didn’t let off until at least 160... and that was the moment I knew someday I would own a CTS-V.

Ironically, those are both towns in rural Indiana as well...

Roll Racing is very popular around here, More popular with the Import/Tuner crowd, But the Camaro/Mustang crowd does it quite often as well.

Not much skill involved (Reaction time/Launching the vehicle). Did one of them beep the horn 3 times?

I get a lot "kids" try these when I'm on the R1. I dont know what inspires someone to race something that weights nothing with too much horsepower.

I don't think so.. Seemed to be a verbal thing. Was definitely interesting to see.

I used to participare in such things on I37 back in my bachelor muscle car days, always as the challengee. Twice on my way into work a cowirker ttied to challenge me with his truck first when noses were even, then later with a huge running start. He never came out ahead. I never took it past 130 MPH on the public roadways.

81 mph or faster in Virgina is good for a $2500 fine and a couple nights in jail. Is it worth it?

bubbatime,

You aren't saying that 81 on an interstate will net you a $2500 money order are you? I assume you're referring to state roads?
