Re: Track Event Vette (Mallet)

I believe Mallet entered their car in the One Lap a few years ago. 
Exploded the brake rotors at one of the track events.  Nascar engine, big
wheels/tires, big brakes (I guess not big enough).  Car had insane amounts
of power, hence the brake problems at the end of the long straight.
