These supercar folks have been creeping up on 300 for a few years, it's amazing.

What's just as impressive to me is that they are getting the cars stopped with only 1/2 mile of shutdown. No time for dilly-dallying!

I saw a Triumph Sports Car beat that speed by over 60 miles per hour.

Yeah, but that car looks as much like a real Triumph as a rear engine modified roadster looks like a real roadster.   :dhorse:

The two speed disciplines are totally different but each is worthy of recognition by the appropriate governing body.

For those who hate thrust propulsion at least each vehicle was what many call an 'automobile'.
