  • Irresponsible thread – how fast…….
  • ….have you ever driven a car?

    Lets say for the benefit of our resident plod you either have an active imagination, or were on an Autobahn, or track day.

    Sooo, I’ll start the ball rolling with 145mph (speedo reading, so probs only 130’ish). I fully expect that to be beaten, but for a diesel Passat, not bad (was downhill though).

    Motorbikes don’t count, but I’m sure we will get a few chipping in.

    Never owned a fast car for license loosing reasons…

    But have been driven at 130 through the turkmen desert in a big engined 5 series – he just put the boot in and kept it there till we converged with a railway line – i thought we were going to take off….

    Car, 120mph.

    Motorbike 180+ on roads, many many many times.

    GSXR1000, Hayabusa, R1’s, etc etc.

    I had 120mph out of a vauxhall nova once.

    Fastest ever – probably the wrong side of 170mph in a Noble M12 on a runway.

    155 mph in a car – on a closed section, obviously
    Unlike Weeksy, a tad less on a bike -around the 150 mph on the clock

    I had a Citroen once – and 135 mph , the bonnet started to flex and the doors move in and out – ever so slightly !!

    Lets just say, erm, some of you are complete bellends – see Co-op car park thread. But no worries, not a plod bashing thread.

    158 on an airfield – Porche cayman, not my car
    143 (ish) in a chipped and tuned 1.8T Golf. Got photo evidence at the time too πŸ™‚

    About 200km/h or 125mph in Germany on way to wedding in rental car.

    Got pulled in Canada once as a student. Rental company messed up and we got a Pontiac Grand Am instead of a Corolla. 3l V6 but slow for it.

    Officer pulled us over, ‘do you know how fast we clocked you’

    Me ‘Err no Officer’

    Officer ‘You were doing 130 in a 90 zone’

    Me ‘ oh sorry officer (inside head:- Thank **** earlier I’d being doing 170)’

    This was on a straight 3 line empty highway between Jasper and Banff and we were enjoying the road.

    He booked me for 110 in a 90 zone and suggested I was leaving soon I might skip the fine. Very nice chap.

    +180mph – Kawasaki ZX9R, many times

    140mph in a car

    No real idea, certainly around 140

    Motorbikes on a public road? Probably 160-170

    Sooo, I’ll start the ball rolling with 145mph (speedo reading, so probs only 130’ish). I fully expect that to be beaten, but for a diesel Passat, not bad (was downhill though).

    So you drove like a total **** today and now you’re telling us…really clever thing to do…have you ever been to an accident site when the bodies are mangled beyond all belief

    Sorry to put a downer on your immature thread !

    150 ish most days as I live near an autobahn.

    Germany is great.

    Disclaimer: in car by myself, dry weather only, plenty of driver training πŸ™‚ , well serviced car with good brakes, proper rated tyres, no other traffic. Read road well ahead, as some mirror phobic mobile phone user will test those aforementioned brakes. In car with passengers then 100-130 seems the norm in these parts. Did I say Germany is great!

    Passenger in a Nova at Bruntingthrope proving ground, 160mph by timing gear.

    In the past two years prob 80! In younger days 115 in an astral downhill on the motorway. I hate speed and sleeping. Life is too precious.

    Done 140 mph a couple of times , seems to be my default bottle out speed .

    I have done 40 mph through the eurostar train in my old mondeo , mildly ammusing πŸ™‚

    About 140mph in a 7 series chauffeur car that picked me up from Munich. I wasn’t in that much of a hurry, which I pointed out to the driver. Felt fine too.

    Who said anything about today? 4 years ago I had a Passat.

    Erm, if you hadn’t noticed, there are other contributors to this thread – and as you know nothing about the details of my driving i.e. where it was and who was involved, sod off back in yer box.

    150mph in a borrowed 911 in Holland.

    Did have some extra lessons with a police driver just after passing my test at the age of 17, who drove a 3.5L Rover well into three figures on some twisty B roads, while shouting out all the possible hazards he was expecting, mostly while he was on the other side of the road!

    In the UK, never been over 90, roads are far to busy and never owned a decent car.

    Apologies for the date mix up… πŸ˜₯

    52 m.p.h on my cannondale F800 (according to a car that was following me down westbury white horse road descent πŸ˜‰

    125 indicated – me.

    138 indicated – my father’s ur Quattro. Ferrari we overtook at that point then booted it and that was that!

    EDIT – on a road bike, 63 (indicated). Once in France, once off Holme Moss. Eek!

    But have been driven at 130 through the turkmen desert in a big engined 5 series

    Ashgabat to Dashogus road? Not the best for high speed, surely?

    sustained speed, 120 mph for 35 mins London to Northampton as a hitchhiker.

    In Germany, in ‘good’ car with trained and experience driver, who is driving with due consideration of current conditions and other users, then fine. But you should see the state of some buckets struggling to not explode the engines that scream past me in most inappropriate circumstances. Anticipation and stopping safely is everything. Some drivers are safe at 220kph, some are lethal at any speed. Hey ho.

    115mph on a clear stretch of motorway, on a dry bright summers evening.

    129mph on the speedbowl at the Millbrook testing ground – we weren’t allowed on the top lane as we’d have been rear-ended by the Bentleys that were being let loose up there!

    The fastest I’ve managed at Silverstone was only 108mph.

    182 in a mates Nissan Skyline GTR and around 166
    on my Yamaha R1.

    Both are very comfortable at these speeds.

    Since Ive grown up and had kids I stick to the speed limit now.

    Dont think i’ve been over 100 i a car or on a bike.
