200mph at Brunters takes 700+bhp in that Sapphire Cosworth (1250-1300 kg)PLUS a confirmed looney tune driving. Now its 850bhp hitting 200mph in it is pretty routine with the owners latest goal the 210 barrier and hopefully faster.Peter said:Funny how easy people reckon this is when (I think) only 2 cars have bettered 200mph at TOTB. I know Brunters is a quarter of a mile longer but I reckon you'd need 700+ bhp in any 'normalish' weight car to get anywhere near 200mph.. Aristo with 600+ bhp, no way, not by a very long chalk...
Which ones are they?NISFAN said:Whats this business of needing miles and miles to get to a speed? Most 500bhp+ cars can get to thier top speeds within 1 mile, and given an extra 100miles of track won't make them a jot faster.
Would be interested to see that, as from the data-logging I got at Brunters at the last VMax, when we had use of the full runway ie no cars at the end, I was able to run for over 1.5 miles before braking (data from racelogic AX22 GPS+accelerometer). That said the total length of the runway is only about 2 miles, but I'm happy braking in my car at about 200mph with only 500 metres or less, I'm not sure some of the other cars would be so happy to stop in that distance.SteveN said:According to Datron gear you deffo have NOT got 1/4mile more acceleration at Brunters, barely any more, and even less at Woodbridge.
1.25miles is about the lot for all three places TBH.
Ill see if i can check the data we got here n find out for sure.
You've obviously never driven a car at high speed then.NISFAN said:Whats this business of needing miles and miles to get to a speed? Most 500bhp+ cars can get to thier top speeds within 1 mile, and given an extra 100miles of track won't make them a jot faster.
