Tuned Opel Calibra takes center stage at the drag track

This is a video best watched from the opponents position, as the Opel Calibra takes the win and leaves him in the dust. 

The photos show the story of success but the dash-cam video is where the real magic is. You can hear the music streaming out of the tuned Calibra's stereo pounding over the soundtrack and then it is away, shooting past the competition to glorious victory. From the opposition's point of view it looks promising until about half way, as the pink car strikes and runs far ahead to the line. By the looks of the photograpgh, they were very happy about the win, and we're happy to watch it too!
