We are proud announce our SILVER STATE CHALLENGE entry for the Sept 15th EVENT. We are prepping our Corsa Sportive Abarth to race in the 120 mph class. Our driver will be DJ Silva. DJ is an accomplished racer and more than capable driver. As I said in another thread, the our, "Urban Warrior" is dead and now we building our "Corsa Sportivo" to compete in the longest fastest event in the world. We want to build a more aerodynamic car with more power (Stage 3) and hopefully podium this event. There is more to come on this. Look for upgrade in all areas of the car including safety etc.....

Best of luck to the R/R Team and have a safe race! At 120 mph, improved aerodynamics for the Club Sportivo will be the key to sustaining those speeds around SSC road course. Look forward to seeing pics and vids.

Speaking of aero-dynamics...maybe this kit would do the trick?

Indeed! Would require a lot of horsepower to make the extra weight and width worth it, but yeah! I wish this was actually being produced but it's not..it's a deviant art Photoshop project:

ROAD/RACE GETS 3rd Place and Sets Highest Trap Speed and 2013 Silver State Challenge Classic.

Our Driver DJ SILVA and Co-Driver CHRIS WARD did a fantastic job and were the best Rookie Team in Class.

ROAD/RACE Motorsports can say the car got the most and we mean it the most attention at this event of any car and to have it finish on the Podium and set highest trap speed is a Big deal. We beat many V-8 cars and to say we ran a timed class is fine but the TRAP SPEED AWARD and it is a Separate Important accomplishment means a lot.

Thanks to the ROAD/RACE team both back at the shop and our team at the events can only mean.......... THE ITALIANS HAVE LANDED again.

Way to go R/R Team! Congrats! For us dummies, what is "trap speed"? Please educate us.

The trap speed award is basically a "speed trap" that is set up in an undisclosed location. No driver knows where it's setup. They clocked the fastest speed at that moment in the race. Quite an accomplishment!!!!

Congrats to the whole team at RRM!!!!

Just to add to this, according to the final results, not only did the Club Sportivo win the Highest Trap Speed, they did it by a HUGE margin!!!

In their category, their High Trap was 114.0 MPH. The next highest High Trap was 98.1 MPH. Quite a nice little difference and an impressive feat by the little underdog Fiat! This was running against a Chevy Corvette, Ford Shelby GT500, Dodge Charger, Lincoln Mark VII, Ford Focus and Nissan Altima SE-R!

Results can be viewed here:

We are very proud of this accomplishment. Even the Speed Trap Award does mean that we were able to accelerate out of our bracketed Speed to more than 10 MPH faster than the next car, which includes Corvettes, Camaros, Mustang- SHelby GT500, Charger etc.... It was like everyone was asleep compared to us. Plus this was the final Beta Test for us with our Stage 3 Performance package and it worked so well. This race is held at 6800 ft elevation +, so it is also something like a Pike's Peak with regard to making H.P. at altitude.
