Mahana Al-Naemi and the Al Anabi Performance/Speedtech team smashed the all-time nitrous doorslammer record once again on Tuesday at the Qatar Racing club in Doha, storming to a world record lap of 3.643-seconds at 204.82 mph during pre-race testing for Round 5 of the Arabian Pro Series.
Al-Naemi, who has traded the record throughout the winter season in the Middle East with fellow AAP stablemate and American racer Lizzy Musi, clocked a stellar .935 60-foot clocking and carried the front end to nearly half track on his march to the quickest run in history by a nitrous-assisted, full-bodied car. The AAP team put together this killer video, narrated by chassis and suspension specialist Adam Lambert, highlighting the team’s stunning pass and their behind-the-scenes efforts to make it a reality.
Qualifying for Round 5 begins today (tonight in the Middle East, technically), and as Lambert shares, the team has every intent of bettering their 3.64 before the season concludes. Al-Naemi clocked a 3.661 on his qualifying attempt just prior to press time, which is also quicker than the 3.663 by Musi that previously stood as the nitrous standard.
