Not the fastest run either

Illustration for article titled Not the fastest run either

I found the above photo online. The video below I shot myself. The pass before this one clocked over 190 mph. As telemetry revealed he continued to accelerate well past the radar trap and didn’t hit the brakes for turn 2 until he only had 100' left to slow down enough for the hairpin. Translation: he was hitting well over 200 mph. It just that in a normal car you need to slow down to not die.


If you listen closely you can hear him up shift long after he’s past the radar gun.

That, friends, is insane. Of course being close enough to where I could easily have touched his side mirror with my hand (should I wish to be rid of it) is pretty bonkers too.
