Titan Gallardo takes a few hot laps around Sebring International Raceway

June 2nd, 2011 Comments off

Brandon Connelly and Peter Tromboni snapped these great pictures of our Gallardo Twin Turbo at Sebring International during the inaugural FCRA event. We invited accomplished driver and coach Jon Miller took the car out for 10-12 hot laps, with over 850hp on tap on 93 octane the car was exceptionally fast on track. We were able to achieve great cornering speeds with the Toyo R888s on the car, and managed to hit 185mph entering the braking zone for turn 17, a speed rarely seen at Sebring aside from LMP cars. The factory brakes weren’t happy stopping the car from such speeds, so a pad upgrade will be in the cars future for future track outings. After a day in the heat we couldn’t be more happy with how the car performed and look forwards to more track testing at Sebring in the near future. The heat, varying pavement conditions, 3 long straights, and plenty of treacherous corners throughout it’s 3.7 mile length make it the perfect place to take a car like this to it’s limits and gather valuable data.
