Supercars and airstrips go together like Corvettes and gold chains. There are simply few other locations on this blue marble we call Earth that allow owners to legally and somewhat safely tickle the upper limits of their speedometers. That's exactly why Zahir Rana, the owner of ZR Auto, has organized a charity event to allow supercar owners to have their time on the tarmac at the Canadian Forces Base in Cold Lake, Alberta. For the low, low price of $1,500 per car and $500 per passenger, drivers can ratchet their exotics all the way up to 185 mph or better.

There will even an exhibition in which Rana will put his twin-turbo, 860-horsepower Ferrari Enzo toe-to-toe with a CF-18 Hornet fighter jet, but the best part is that every last dollar will go to four charities. The Military Families Support Society, Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation, Bonnyville Health Foundation and Hearts for Healthcare will all benefit from the Race the Base event. There are only 100 slots available, so if you happen to own a car worth wringing out and have $1,500 Canadian burning a hole in your pocket, head over to the ZR Auto site for more information.

      No Ford GT Twin Turbo :(

      I want to see more videos of the 1900 rwhp monster and would be much more competitive towards fighter jets then these cars. I wonder how they are going to conduct this test because lets face it nothing is beating a F-14D Super Tomcat or F-22 down a runway.

      http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/city/pages/ab-23_metric_e.html

      forecast says 11*C high, and 40% chance of rain. it could be really horrible or not go at all, i don't know if it's worth the 10 hour round trip.

      Going there from Saskatoon as a spectator. 4 hour drive to see 100+ exotic/super cars should be well worth it!

      I'm going to this :D I live in Bonnyville which isn't very far from this base.

        @4fifty8 Thanks for the heads up on the trailer. Awesome!!!! The trailer was very professionally done. Would have been neat if a Hornet had overflown the cars on the road at Mach plus. Coldlake is to Canada what Edwards is to the US, two bases where you can let everything hang out and go play, with anything.

        I'd love to race a Veyron against a jet but,
        #1 I'm 6'7 and I'd have to saw my legs off to drive one.
        #2 I don't have $2 million dollars.


        The rest of these cars don't stand a chance. A Veyron loses to a F111Tornado.

      I see 3 Gallardos, 2 F430s, a MC12 and 2 cars I can't make out. On the one between the green Lambo and the Ferrari, the only detail I can see is that it's a convertible. The one between the orange Gallardo and the Ferrari... is that a Callaway? Or am I completely off base?

      Actually, I'm not certain anymore that the red car on the far right is a F430 Scuderia like I first thought. It looks like a Ferrari, a F430 even, but that black vent is throwing me.

      If someone is bringing a 458, they better have fire suppression teams ready.
