While Puerto Rico might be small compared to other countries, it is the epicenter of performance cars in the Caribbean. Over the past 6 years AMS has
built a solid relationship with Predator Performance and they were one of the first companies to install our ALPHA GT-R packages when first released. Predator has a reputation for orchestrating top quality builds and their work with the ALPHA GT-Rs is no different!
1 mile and ½ mile events have been gaining popularity all over the world. In Puerto Rico they use a runway at the Rafael Hernandez Airport to host the PR ½ Mile Event.
Since its inception the event has been dominated by the ALPHA equipped GT-Rs built by Predator Performance. The field is packed with very quick, high-end, high-performance cars including Porsches, Ferraris, Corvettes and even a twin turbo Gallardo. The entrees for this third event were no different and it was no surprise that the ALPHA GT-Rs came out on top yet again and by a huge margin! As you can see from the listing below the GT-Rs were running the show. Every highlighted entry is a car built by Predator Performance.
Winning the entire event was an ALPHA 10 GT-R owned by Jose I Carro running 179.99mph in just a ½ mile!! This monster was built by Predator Performance and custom tuned by AMS tuner Chris Black.
The runner up was Edgardo Melendez in his fully built ALPHA 9 GT-R running a very impressive 178.57mph in the ½ mile.
Coming in third was another ALPHA 10 GT-R owned by Ubaldo Santago. Ubaldo currently holds the record for Puerto Ricos quickest GT-R with a 9.63@150mph. A broken drive shaft early on in the event ended his day leaving him with a best run of 177.44mph.
Overall the event was a HUGE success! Youll be happy to know that the local airport has agreed to 6 more ½ mile events in 2012!
