England’s own Andy Frost, in his wild Red Victor III ran 6.995/218mph at Santa Pod Raceway’s Easter Thunderball last weekend. That run makes Frost’s car the fastest street legal drag car in the world, with the USA’s Larry Larsen holding onto the quickest title with his runs deeper into the 6.90s. Frost’s latest iteration of the Red Victor is an insane twin turbo affair that both looks the business and has the performance to back it up.
It is pretty awesome that we now have a legitimate intercontinental battle for the crown of world’s baddest street car. One can point out small advantages or handicaps that one setup may have over the other, but the fact is both are running a few hun off of one another and it would be absolutely surreal to get them both to the same strip at the same time to have a winner take all brawl.
Congrats to Andy and the Red Victor crew. 218mph?! That is completely unbelievable!
