Here we are at the Daytona Speedway. We’re watching a qualifying round for the Classic 24 race, so there are all sorts of vintage cars up to the usual chicanery and trying to stay on the ground and out of the bleachers on the straightaways.
Then there’s this thing. The V-10 Dallara SP1. The Dallara puts out around 700 horsepower, and spins up to 11,000 RPM if you’re braver than I am. The car’s something along the lines of 20 years old, so it’s hardly state of the art, but many of the cars he’s passing are substantially older. But hooboy, they look like pedal-powered cars compared to this thing.
