  • SCMC's Airstrip Race: Runway Madness!


    The air strip - a place where airplanes from around the country and around the world stop to drop off passengers, re-fuel, load passengers, and for pilots to take a rest. It's huge, spacious, and the runways are very long in order to accommodate the airplanes so they can take off and land.



    So obviously, the best way to use the runway when there aren't any airplanes on it is DRAG RACING!

    Yep, we've been dreaming to finally see a drag race event at an air strip, and Sports Car Medan Community (SCMC) made our dream come true on the 6th of October. SCMC held a drag race event at the Polonia Airport, Medan, a few weeks ago on 6th of October, and the SC Media Team was invited to cover the event.



    Our media team arrived at Saturday, 5th of October, a day before the event, filled with passion and excitement for the event, we prepared our pre-flight checks before the event started. Including eating some durian.






    The next day, the pack gathered at 9:00AM at Harbour 9 before setting off to the air strip. There were a total of 39 cars attended the event, ranging from Japanese samurais like the Toyota 86, 350Z, 370Z, and the Honda S2000, a Godzilla, some European Goliaths like the Audi R8 V8, Ferrari F430, and the Porsche 911, and even an American Muscle, the Chevy Camaro RS.



    Sciroccos normally look sleek and stylish, but this one is fitted with a Rieger Bodykit and it looks rather fierce. Be afraid.


    Speed Creed founders Mike (right) and Will (left) handing over a token of appreciation to the organizer and "pentolan" who put together SCMC, Mr. Wiwi (center) - thanks so much for having us there!


    Our media team (as usual) are enthusiastic about cars, while the members and owners are getting ready, our media team crews are squatting, sweating, shooting. It's a hard job but it's worth it.





    Soon enough, the pack of 39 sports cars left for Polonia Airport, everyone was eager to put their foot down unleashing every single horsepower their engine could put out.

    The streets of Medan certainly have never seen or heard this many sports cars roaming at once - not to mention the traffic lights were turned green ON PURPOSE by the magic of the SCMC members!



    Take a look at that view, all sorts of cars gather at an airfield ready to unleash all their fury, from hot hatchbacks to supercars, from 4-cylinders turbo, to naturally aspirated V8s.


    To keep it even and fair, the race was divided into 6 different groups:
    1. MINIs
    2. SLKs
    3. 86 and S2000s
    4. 350Z, 370Z, and Scirocco R
    5. European sports cars - 630i, E class, Boxster
    6. Super cars



    Yes, they're called MINI, but the horsepower output isn't as 'mini' as you'd think it would be.




    When you're at the start line, here's what you do: put the gear into first, put your foot down and scream 'POWEEEEERRRRR'




    The SLK has two modes: the relaxed open-top cruiser, or the sprinting closed-top racer. Better put the roof up today for better aerodynamics.




    Afterwards, there was also a 1 on 1 race for those who want to see what their cars could do against other cars.





    Blue STI on gold wheels? Stock look, but still the perfect combination in my opinion.




    Utilizing airport runways as drag strip is truly a great way for communities to gather and take their cars to the limit, also to avoid street races that could endanger other road users.


    We would like to thank Wiwi and Soemitro for hosting this fantastic event, as well as the rest of the board, seniors, "pentolans," and members of SCMC! Stay tuned to our video coverage of this epic turnout!
