Two different races in Cleveland, OH. Same night.
WRX vs GTP.
Just getting off at Rockside Exit off of I-77 South. I stopped behind a coupe Pontiac GTP. I didn't realized it was a GTP, but I was guessing. Light turned green and we made a left. He got on it maybe 1/2 throttle, and I proceeded to follow. I moved to the left lane and got next to him at the next light. Shortly after we both stopped, the light turns green. He and I rolled off the light, but he rolled out with some grunt and I knew it was on, so I went WOT in 1st. By the time I went WOT, he my bumber was at the beginning of his door. We both shut down for the next light. I looked over and gave him a thumbs up, and he replied. I then revved to about 4-4.5K and launch when the light turned green. He proceeded to go WOT also. We both were even, except I got the launch on him. I slowed down as I was riding out the middle of 3rd...saw some cop lights at the next intersection...cops are required to stay on site for road constructions. No one noticed the race.
WRX vs IS300.
Coming home from the movie on I-77 North to I-490 West. As I was merging onto 490, I saw the IS300 and speed up to get behind him. He was on the left lane and I followed behind. As the highway openned up he moved to the next right lane and I passed him doing about 75-80mph. He proceeded to speed up and passed me doing about 80-90mph. I knew he took he wanted to go. When I caught up to him, we were merging with I-90 West. I was still in the left lane and put it into 4th at about 65-70mph, waiting for him to get next to me. He caught up and stayed next to me, I rolled on the gas to see if he stilled wanted to go, and he did. At this time I'm at 70-75mph and dropped it into 3rd and went WOT. He got the jumped on me when I was stilled in 4th and had 1/2 of his car infront of mine. Pulled even and passed him in 3rd, shifted to 4th and was about 2 cars in front when I shut down.
I then cruised at about 65mph and he stayed back about 4 car lengths behind. He came up for another try around the Lorain Rd Exit, and I repeated the kill. I slowed down and he did the flyby, I caught up and gave him a thumbs up and he replied. We both got off at the W140th Exit and went out own way.
