Roll racing is becoming an increasingly popular format for drag racing. Rather than starting from a stop, the cars will cruise to a set speed, usually around 60 mph, until they hit the start line. Once they’ve passed the line, they are free to hammer on the accelerator until they’ve run out of racetrack. Usually this is done at events with high horsepower cars, which may struggle to find proper traction accelerating from a stand still.
We have a feeling that if this were a quarter-mile event, the nearly 1000 horsepower Arctic White Corvette ZR1 in the video below may not have been so dominant. The car posted the fastest trap speed of the entire event and was about 15 mph faster than the Supra it makes mince-meat of in the first race. It then goes on to beat every single car it lines up with, including an extremely fast C6 Z06 which looks like it’s also pushing nearly 1000 ponies.
This six-speed ZR1 appears to be purpose built for high-speed runs down the airstrip. We’re curious how it would fare in the quarter-mile and if it could put all the power to the ground as well as does in a roll race, so heres to hoping we’ll see more footage of it from High Tech Corvette in the future. For now, the video below will suffice.
