DavidCPovenski September 2, 2019 08:49 AM "Under current FIA rules, two runs are required in opposite directions within one hour, over a timed mile and a new record mark must exceed the previous one by at least one percent to be validated. Records are set in either the flying kilometre or flying mile." - Wikipedia It's not an official record, so first to 300 mph isn't quite a valid claim. I hope someone else does it the right way and let the mud slinging begin! BlueOak September 2, 2019 09:50 AM An impressive accomplishment! But LOL, was there even a single token Frenchman representing this French brand, albiet owned by Volkswagen? Not even for appearances? Username September 2, 2019 10:02 AM When reporting on a new record it would make sense to mention the previous record. McDesign September 2, 2019 10:34 AM Super, super, super! KaiserPingo September 2, 2019 12:06 PM Really useful to all people on the planet and sooo environmentally forward thinking. Well, its Germans so... Richard Graham September 2, 2019 03:41 PM Holy suspension and OIL, batman...who supplied the tires? phissith September 2, 2019 03:47 PM And the car break down right after the video. Haha! David Hutchinson September 2, 2019 04:44 PM Big Deal!!! So what if you can drive 300 mph. What's the practicality of 300 mph? Where can you drive 300 mph, 200 mph, 150 mph? It's a pissing match. Phocks September 2, 2019 11:30 PM Blue Bird 301.129 MPH 1935. I make the observation only and congratulate all involved in this informal record. Douglas E Knapp September 3, 2019 03:45 AM I agree you can't drive 490 very often but driving 200 is a daily thing here in Germany. An as to that comment about germans and environment? I have no idea what you are talking about. The Germans are very prograssevir about saving the Earth.
