    I did a buck five this morning on the Interstate 78 Speedway. Does that count?

    Depends on the track...You might have driven the 911 on a track with long straights meaning more time to hit higher speeds...whereas carbrochuretom might have gone on a track with smaller straights meaning less time to hit the speeds you did.....

    Negative, ghost rider. Top speed = 127mph. She was definitely singin' though.

    Precisely. For a British circuit, that's rather fast I'd say. Silverstone I presume?

    the track i was driving on is really rally small - the longest straight had just about 400 m and it's very windy - called 'lawice' in poznan but that probably won't tell you anything

    so it was just thanks to the outstanding skills of the drivers

    This summer i drove a Ferrari F355 GTB. Not on a track though. But a really amazing experience. The acceleration, the sound, the speed you can carry through bends. We had 200km/h in a 50 zone. I didnt go that fast, but the owner was an excellent driver. Caught the tail in a slide doing 120. A marvelous car!
