It wasn't even close. Partly because the SSC was sick, as we would later discover, but also because the Venom is so monumentally savage in its delivery.
We are out here in Nowhere, NV, en route to the start of the Silver State Classic Challenge in Ely. It's a cross between a time trial and a race over 90 miles of closed public road, with a host of super and very un-super cars taking part. There are classes for different average speeds ranging from 95mph up to the 180mph and Unlimited class. And it's as much about timing as speed.
