The Battle Creek Speedfest was a multi-day event held over the July 4th weekend in conjunction with the Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival. Let’s just say if it drove, flew or floated, you were at home last weekend in Battle Creek.
Along with the US Air Force Thunderbirds, one of the big draws for the weekend was the half mile drag race on the airport’s runway.
Thanks to DtRockstar1 on youtube, we have a great video to share featuring multiple camera angles of a Corvette ZR1 vs a Porsche GT3 engaging in multiple runs.
We are told that the Corvette had headers and muffler delete as mods and so I was very interested to hear what it would sound like. Especially when see on the first run that a microphone was routed through the hatch and pointed at the exhaust. You will agree with many of the comments who thought the sound was incredible.
