    Took the Hellcat out to VIR today for a private track rental.

    The track was wet and scary earlier in the day.... Had a Radical spin out in front of me and a Viper Comp Coupe went into the wall. I wasn't able to give the cat more than 1/3 throttle for the 1st 2 sessios.

    Once the track warmed up....it was a lot of fun. Had it up to 152 on the front straight and the HC was going through a 1/4 tank of gas every 15 minutes.

    Here are some pics. Amazing cars out there today.

    McLaren 675LT (they are making 500 and two of them were there), Huracan, GT3RS, GTR, 911 cup car, Viper Comp Coupe, Radicals and Atoms.

    I want to know what kind of times the Rolls would lay down. :)

    It's a Bentley Mulsanne....the owner didn't take it on the track. He had a McLaren, 911 cup car and a 911 GT3RS all at the track.

    The other 675LT had temp tags still on it.

    Amazing to race with these cars today!

    Aww. Hoping I would get away with that a little longer. ;) Six minutes it took someone to notice.

    Sorry, no videos... I go to the roadcourse a couple times per year and hope to get more track time in the Viper. I'd like to get a Gen 4 ACR or Gen V TA 1.0

    The Hellcat was fun, but way too big and too powerful for the roadcourse (compared to a sports car).

    I was able to keep up with the McLaren pretty well surprisingly, but that has more to do with the driver than the car. One of the guys got it up to 167 on the front straight. Crazy!

    That's really cool you're out there doing it with this beast... the HC does look like a big car in that group... definitely rubbing some elbows with some serious track cars. My son loves Porsche GT3 nice pic... too bad it wasn't closer I would love to watch some of those cars. It would be cool if they had an all Hellcat (Challenger) day... at least it would be apples to apples.
