    Whilst I am going myself, courtesy of Marty,s efforts,to which I am very grateful, just wondering to whether anyone else from this forum is booked on this event, believe Alx is coming along with his revitalised Kleeman ML, think his car is very strong now, so should be very intresting. Anyone else going ...?

    yup. Just so I can change the wording on my ad from 'max speed estimated at over 165mph' :)

    Thanks but I only won a few seconds and mainly due to Ferrari driver having a wheel spin. He caught up very quickly and was a few car lengths ahead before we got to the U-turn. Still it was a great day out.

    Here's the vid from inside the cabin filmed by one of the guys at the back:

    I'm still amused not just that I managed to get to 172 - two up - but that the speedo stopped increasing, both dial and digital readout, at 160, even though I was still accelerating.
