No need to go to FL.   I do 170 on the LA freeways all the time. I think the average speed (not during traffic times...yes there are still some hours like that) is about 90 mph.

2006 FGT, Tungsten. Whipple, HRE 20s, Ohlin coil-overs. Top Speed Certified 210.7 mph.

Gentlemen please there is absolutely positively no reason what so ever, that no licensed driver should go past the legal posted speed limits.

30 MPH 45 MPH 55 MPH 70 MPH

Alrighty, enjoy your day and we thank you good citizen on observing the posted speed limits

Thank you

The vice president of that new track is quoted in the article as saying, a Ferrari would never go out with an open wheeled car, Nor would , a Corvette, ever be out with a Miata.

..................
I would say that every track I've ever been to there is an open wheeled race car out there, which is at least as fast as the Ferrari that is out there. And I would say that every time there is a very quick Miata out there, there is certainly a Corvette. And to put things in perspective, I'm sure the open wheeled comment is " speaking to"  performance not safety.
But even if it is speaking to safety, I can say that every single time I've ever driven Watkins Glen, which is perhaps the cream of the crop in the United States, there are open wheeled race, cars out there with every other variety of car, and speeds which reach 170 mph plus on the back straight. And we have been out there with the Aston Martin team practicing amongst us. And the open wheel race cars are very careful and we are very careful of any open wheeled car.
And I don't like MiataS either, but don't ever assume they're slow if one is driving a Corvette.

Biggie...especially if someone put a SB Ford in the Miata.  Those are a helluva lot of fun!

Red flags  :

Called the Motor Enclave

"mancaves" with garages for car aficionados.

Think of the units as "car condos

"All exotics, but also Ford, Mustang, Camaro, Corvette, Ferrari, Lamborghini, you name it."

"There is no racing,"  "It's all about safety. This is not a racetrack. It's an enthusiast circuit. 

"If you have a Ferrari, you're not going out with an open-wheel car,"

"A Corvette is not going out with a Miata."

This definetly FRU FRU TALK.....adios !
