      60 year old lady and her 11 second AMG Benz

      The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is a bit of a playboy's car. Something for young guy in finance. Kathy Countiss goes against that stereotype, drag racing her chipped C63 even in her 60s.

      Here she is with her husband (in a-10 second Viper) at the TX2K12 drags earlier this year in Houston, pulling an 11.72-second run. Countiss says she's been drag racing since her teens, and we wish her many more years to get that C63 into the 10s.

      Go gran-ma go!!

      i have seen videos of him driving around the MMTC, his composure even when he's boxed in is commendable, he works hard at overtaking people and doesn't let go, keeps at it

      Vidhi uncle isn't 80 is he? I thought he was around 68 and Viji uncle around a decade younger to him.

      I had the opportunity to sit with him driving a OHC at the Kari and boy, does he know how to drive. Here are some videos of him driving in the Esteem.

      in the last vid, you can clearly hear that there's some sort of ignition failure and the engine is struggling, and the engine sputters in the mid range, but he didn't give up, overtook some people too...

      Yup. The blue esteem guy even hit him from behind just as he entered one of the corners as well. You can see him go full opposite lock to prevent a spin. Both he and Viji uncle along with Radha are veterans in the motorsports scene! Now with Leela also joining the fray, it's quite something to watch these guys giving the young guns a fight for their money.
