    Wow, sorry I have missed all of the fun in this thread going back to a year ago!

    FYI, I know Kevin and have a good relationship with him and UGR. We have been discussing doing a Venom GT vs TT Aventador race at some point. I suppose that both of us are busy taking care of business and customers while doing some occasional car events here and there. That's why no race thus far.

    As of right now there are 8 Venom GTs in existence with a few more being built. Most owners are not interested in racing their cars unlike many TT Lambo guys who will race anytime anywhere. We do have one client who will let us run his car, but this would only be under the safest conditions on something like a runway. Thus, we will do our best to coordinate something with Kevin at some point when it works best for both of our companies.

    I am not interested in running any individual TT Lambo owners. If I lose then I lose. If I win then some will say that it really doesnt count since I didnt race Kevin's best car. So I will let Kevin pick his best car and run that when the time comes. In the meantime I need to find some more power because he has us covered by about 20 mph in 1/4 mile trap speed. Hopefully he will agree to run at least a mile if not longer as I will need all the distance I can get to try to catch him!

    And by the way, I am sure that the YouTube video views for this will be huge. So you can be sure that Kevin and I will agree to do this under our own terms and in the safest way possible. I think it would be a cool race and hopefully it becomes a reality at some point. Thanks.

    John

    FYI LMR's Vette outran all at TI last year...even at the last TI event no one ran above the 194mph mark that LMR ran in the 'Tejano Blue' vette last year. Not taking sides here, just stating that neither company mentioned above would be the 'King of the Street'.

    If we are talking 1/4 mile there are several builders that are faster as well...

    Not interested in any titles. And as we all know, "there is always somebody faster". If and when this goes down, it will just be for fun.

    Glad to see everyone here has a "fun" and "positive" attitude for this race..

    Agreed, I would love to see this happen, but I think UGR would take it hands down. I wasn't trying to be 'that guy' with my comment, but I just thought the OP was stating that these are the fastest two builders on the market right now.

    Either way this race would be EPIC!
