    i reached a top speed of 140mph on the mile long main straight before i ran out of space in my car
    i was only over taken once by my dad lol in his lotus carlton
    i managed to keep up with his mate in his lc for a few laps
    i reached a speed of 150mph in the lotus carlton when i drove that

    you are so lucky to have such events in UK...we haven't any in Latvia
    ok, you can reserve track for yourself, but then safety etc is on your own...and no competitors to fight against

    just a 2.2 airbox conversion
    iridium plugs and custom decat precat and custom miltek cat back and obviously tc switch
    as for leaving everything else standing your right i did
    i had a race with a standard lotus carlton for about 3-6 laps and he couldnt shake me the only car that over took me the whole day was a 450bhp lotus carlton now im impressed with that
    well i had 2 nearly new eagle f1s and now they bald
    so it cost a lot as i had grooved discs and ebc green stuff pads put on oil and filter change brake fluid change 2 tyres and 2 tanks of fuel and the cost of the day
    BUT WAS WORTH
    everyone should do this
    heres a couple more pics hopefully i can get some more videos up soon


    and the video of me being over taken
    baring in mind he was chasing me till the main straight and hit 160-170mph and i was doing 140mph
