HOW fast ?

As mentioned above, the Texas Mile
offers 1.0 mile "acceleration runs."

At one time, when the event was in
Goliad Texas, I held the track record at 251.134mph
for the standing start mile..........

I'm going to Mosport/ Canadian Tire Motorsport Park for the first time -leave tomorrow thru Sunday for a PWC event. I hear it is fast and old school! Looking forward to trying it for the first time.

Good luck up there Alan. I'll be tuning in to watch!

But be careful, that's a track that looks simple enough, but it can bite!

You are one crazy dude. BTW, I'm probably one of the few who know what a TZ 750 is.

Cars are soooo much faster nowadays. Oh well, good memories. (Testarossa won this day.)

90 mile drive thru the country, nothing quite like it.
