Phew, what an absolutely incredible weekend of racing with the fantastic WannaGOFAST crew at Heaven’s Landing in Georgia. Not one but two of our customer’s Corvettes broke the 200-mph barrier in the half-mile, setting them firmly in the record books as the first Corvettes to EVER go 200 in the half.
But, honestly, that was just icing on the cake. All in all we had over 20 different customers racing each day and saw over 3,000 different spectators come through the venue in that same period. Everyone was amped up, everyone was ready to roll, and the cars were on kill from every group… It was just fun to mix it up with the Lambo, GTR, Porsche, and exotic owners all weekend long AND see our friends set new personal bests. Seriously, if it wasn’t for our amazing customers, friends, and families, this would have just been another weekend at the strip. But everyone who came out was in it to win it!
Just look at all of the Vengeance Racing personal bests:
