After two years of trying, the Fortune Cookie Racing 924 beat the old two liter Classic Production record of 138.8 by almost eight miles per hour by resetting it at 145.632 MPH. That two run average was the result of a 147.816 qualifer and 143.448 return run (into a headwind). We crossed the three mile finish just north of 151 on that first run. Not too shabby for a naturally aspirated two liter four banger.

The 138.8 record (set in 2013) was a pretty radical Carmen Gia.
