Whoo hoo...

Beats my 'personal best'


From BBC News just now.

Motorist admits driving at 172mph

A motorist has admitted driving at a speed of 172mph on a road in Oxfordshire with a 70mph speed limit.
Timothy Brady was driving a Porsche 911 along the A420 near Kingston Bagpuize when he was caught in a routine speed check, Oxford Crown Court heard.
Brady, 33, of Harrow in north-west London, will be sentenced in September.
The speed is thought to be the highest recorded in the UK for such an offence. Road safety charity, Brake, described the case as "shocking".
Brady also denied a further charge of aggravated vehicle taking on Friday.
Rachel Burr, campaigns officer for Brake, said: "The idea that someone was driving at that speed is shocking and horrific.
"The chances that a person will be able to control a vehicle at that speed if something unexpected happens is slim. "It is extremely selfish - they [people who speed excessively] don't have the right to put other people's lives at risk."

Begs the question, just how fast can a 126 go in Oxfordshire?

These idiots have no clue. Great story here a few years ago. Fellow decides to wind up his BMW on a straight, lonely two-lane highway around 6 AM one Sunday morning (Saturday night for him, no doubt). He hits a small dip in the road and goes airborne, due to excessive speed estimated at around 140 mph. The car lands flush on top of another car traveling in the opposite direction, killing him and the family of four in the other car. Asshole.

I have gone an indicated 185mph before, but that is probably my last mega hurrah. I have been over 160mph more than 20 times. At the track of course.

Yes, of course. I knew I had seen him somewhere.





But in actual fact, I did see him in Beverly Hills. That dome shaped cinema on the strip.
