On a rainy day last November, a collection of sports & exotic cars met up to drag race on the famous Top Gear Test Track.
There are two kinds of people in this world: people who love drag racing, and people with bad 60-foot times. YouTube car channel Lovecars must agree, as they assembled an amazing collection of sports cars at the famous Top Gear Test Track for a day of fast fun.
The video, hosted by beloved Fifth Gear alum Tiff Needell and first-class car enthusiast Paul Woodman under an umbrella, would see an impressive, eclectic collection of sports and exotic cars squaring off against each other. In a very English turn of events, the event day ended up being a very wet one indeed, which would have an understandably large effect on traction. Rain in England? Who would have thought?
More exotic drag racing action
Nearly everything you could want was present, from a vast collection of Lamborghinis, a selection of Porsche 911s new and old, a full selection of exotic British hardware from Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, and McLaren, and oddities like a Caterham and some kind of high-performance off-road buggy.
Given the dreadful weather and dearth of available traction, it's no surprise that the all-wheel-drive cars almost universally won the day. That said, there were more than a few surprises, including the Caterham and Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge putting on valiant displays. Must have been home field advantage.
Regardless, the Lamborghini Aventador SV won the day, proving itself against an impressive – and diverse – array of exotic machinery. The rest of the day was filled with just-for-fun races, with owners braving the rain for as many chances as possible to line up against their high-dollar rivals on the famous Top Gear Test Track. Even with the weather, it looked like a great time – even for the guy who had an unfortunate off in his Porsche.
