ICYMI: The top 10 fastest cars at Goodwood | Video

https://www.youtube.com/embed/L6YJi9ul_pY

Ever see a car go so fast the camera operator struggles to keep up? That’s what it’s like to watch the McMurtry Speirling–a 1000-horsepower, all-electric fan car–set a record time of 00:39.08 in the Speed Timed Shootout during the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

For comparison, watch the other top nine fastest cars at Goodwood, the "slowest" of which was a Dodge Viper GTS-R.

So...by my count the top 10 fastest are half electric...color me impressed! The McMurtry is insane...I actually gasped out loud at how fast it is while watching the video.

A boxer engine Subaru was 4th.  That is impossible if you read this forum!

It's a fan car.

 

You could drive it on the ceiling of a tunnel!

In reply to bentwrench :

You're right, I'd seen that. All of the downforce without the inherent drag of a winged car. It's surely got some sort of variability in the amount of downforce depending on requirements, too. 
 

Not eligible for Pikes Peak.

The original fan / sucker car was built in TX a long time ago.  It was declared illegal before it ever competed.  Not all downforce is created equal.

Per Goodwood rules, a lot of gas powered vehicles can not run a timed run, so...
