Today’s hypercars are so stinking fast, that most racetracks are nowhere near big enough to let them truly stretch their legs. Forget public roads. Consider the 217 mph, 950 horsepower Ferrari LaFerrari and 270 mph (theoretically), 960 horsepower Koenigsegg Agera — cars with enough power and speed to accidentally tip the planet’s rotational axis. This new level of performance has given rise to Vmax events, at which owners can fire their cars down a two-mile stretch of runway to see just how fast they actually are.

We’re really beginning to think our pal Shmee150 has some sort of self-replicating superpower, because the guy seems to be everywhere at once, including the Hypermax II event at the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground near Birmingham, England, where he witnessed this epic LaFerrari, Agera drag race. The K-egg has some trouble getting power down at the start, but begins to catch the red car, once aerodynamics become a factor. Place your bets, and watch to see which car is quickest.
