Pistonheads organised the latest round of the Vmax series at the Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome and Proving Ground in Leicestershire on Sunday 20th March.
The 2 mile long and 60 m wide runway is the longest in the UK. Timing gear was setup at the end of the runway to accurately record the terminal velocity of the cars.
|Speedo is off the scale at this point, was reading approx 180 mph !!!|
|Tiff Needell was there along with a film crew from the Channel 5 "5th Gear" programme. Interesting banter comparing the 4-cylinder car to their 200 mph V8 project.|
