Still awesome videos/runs/speeds ,glad that the LP is being used properly and is not just a show piece for you.
Not really. I tried to get through the strip when visibility was good but it deteriorated in a matter of minutes. All safe though.

Amazing Videos buddy.
But dude, always remember one thing, your life is more precious than you doing 305kmph. So keep it safe and enjoy the LP.

Oh it is an awesome feeling! And the best part is that even at that speed , it remains planted to the tarmac like a rock! My neck was hurting after some time due to the initial *punch in the stomach * kick that it gives when hard accelerating from 1 - 3 rd gear!

I so want to sit in the LP while you are doing runs on the airstrip.

Wow ! 300+ !! Which gear were you in at that speed?
Do these hard runs result in any visible tyre degradation?

i guess this is the best you can do about exploiting the cars true colours.Hope all the south indian super car owners do something like that.Advantage down south are the race tracks in coimbatore and in chennai. This is where supercars need to be flogged and not in cities where rice boy racers (read tuned civics and skodas and swifts) will do just fine.
bravo my friend.

Nice, I'm sure it was quite a thrill to have an unrestricted run in that beast! You're right though, to max most really fast cars out you'd need more like a 5,000m run to both safely accelerate and decelerate without any panic situations!

Amazing video, mind blowing! Wish you had a in-dash camera covering your cockpit and the runway. I guess that would be greedy on my part but do you think you can have a setup like that, probably between the driver and the passenger seat?
