might be of interest to you guys, top speed only day on 24th sept @ elvington for 50 per car/bike

main tarmac runway in reverse direction, ie with normal prevailing wind behind. open to all, will mr forrests 210mph stand as the record?

there will also be some 250+mph turbo bikes there which will be interesting to watch, with a spectating area at the speed trap.

I might be looking for a driver, never mind a passenger.
I don't like the top speed stuff !

Or did you mean on the 250mph bike :D

i dont think so as they pulled the rug on those a couple of years ago due to the insurers getting worried. will ask tho! used to enjoy the passenger rides on the top speed runs.

Giving it YeeHa up a tree lined tunnel don't phase me, but trying to make a saloon car (any saloon car) do 200+ MPH is getting into the realms of ludicracy. They are just as likely to take off as stay on the ground.

John, I 100% agree, but could be an ideal opportunity to check the map and have someone keep an eye on whats going on without having to do it on the road and keep an eye on the mirrors & joe public.
