November 9th 2013 was the 2nd running of the Snowy Mountains 1000m event – http://snowymountains1000.com.au/. This event is to see who is the fastest (and has the highest top speed) from a standing start over a 1000m (1km) airport runway in an regional Australian town (Cooma, NSW). No race fuels, no nitrous, and only on street radial tyres.
The new Toyota FT-1 concept was released today at the 2014 Detroit Auto show, not many details at this stage but hopefully it serves as a new platform for the supra. Few screen grabs from the live stream press conference.
