10,000 horsepower. Workshop against workshop. Tyre against tarmac.
In the Turbosmart Flying 500 Workshop Battle, every car on track rolls into launch, attempting to convert the near 1000 horsepower in each competitors engine bay to the maximum velocity.
Held to the track with downforce and protesting rubber, these missiles screech to speeds of over 270km/h from Turn One past the stands, where onlookers cover their ears and widen their eyes.
With 11 of the toughest street cars on the property invited from some of Australia’s best workshops, each lined up and took their shot at holding the throttle flat the wrong way up the Sydney Motorsport Park main straight.
