VW Drag Racing history was made the weekend of August 23/24 at ATCO Raceway in NJ. Brian Kirchberger from GTR Motorsports in his
ATP Turbo/Schimmel Performance/Garret Turbocharger/Driveshaft Shop/Hodi's Performance sponsored Jetta became the first FWD VR6 to make a 9second 1/4mile pass by running 9.94 @ 142mph, then proceeded to back that run up with a 9.93 @ 143mph. The next day during the IDRC event Brian improved upon those times by running 9.78 @ 143mph, then on the next run became the Worlds Quickest/Fastest FWD VW by running 9.75 @ 144.16mph. For details on the car check out http://www.gtrmotorsports.net and for videos check out our video section.

Then this past weekend in Canada, Tom and Marco from SEM (Strictly European) who has been the Worlds Quickest FWD VR6 for 2 years, finally got alot of the bugs worked out of there car to propel the car to it's first ever 9second pass. By sneaking in with a 9.991 @ 141.86. Unfortunately they didn't get a chance to back up the run because they lost that round of eliminations but don't worry this car will be out again real soon and i'm sure it will have no problems backing up and dipping solidly into the 9's.

Congrats to both on the record breaking performances.

The VW world might see 2-4 more 9second cars before the end of the 2003 race season
Kevin Black in his 16v Rocco, best of 10.05 @ 142mph, Turbo Lou best of 10.209 @ 140mph, and theres a few other cars with hopes of the magic E/T. We'll have to just sit back wait and watch
