After going to TOTB2 (and not entering) was just wondering if there is anywhere else with a similar length of straight track to try for top speeds.

Does anyone know if Elvington has open days to use the runway?

1) Need a special race licence

Hiring Elvington is one option, some of the FDUK guys are thinking of doing it. They're looking at costs for half days and full days to see how much it would cost to share.
They wanna test Top Speed and get some mapping done.

FDUK is the RX7 club, FD being their engine ID like ours is RB.

I have been sitting here trying to make something with the letters about hairdressers or some general insult, but have failed.

So I nod in their general direction instead

You could try Montlhéry close to Paris: there's an oval there, but I'm not sure what sort of speeds you can take through it. It's where the French press measure acceleration data and top speeds, so should be ok and not too far.

Otherwise, down to Italy to Nardi where they measured the McLaren F1 at 392 km/h :eek:
