For the world record, wouldn't he need to run the track in the opposite direction as well?

Also, I wonder what those tires cost? On an episode of Top Gear when James May had a Veyron over 250 MPH, the tires were said to cost 20,000 pounds per set.

Just reminds me how much I can't stand Richard Rawlings.

The guy, Aaron, who actually did all the work is pretty cool. He just doesn't have enough Broseph in him to be on TV.



Awesome that they did this in a street driven car though. Remarkable acheivement.

This has to be a record, 3 Midway guys in a row on one thread.

Seriously though, that guy outran the Shanghai Maglev train which tops out at 431 kmh.

Andy Wallace (Test Driver for Bugatti) hit 490 KPH (304 mph) in a long tail Chiron with the speed limiter removed. Claimed to have done 1,000 KM over 400 KPH in one week during testing.

They needed the runway from F&F 6 to reach the actual top speed with room to spare for braking
