Me too but a bit too much wind noise to properly appreciate! That run we got up to around 7500RPM no GPS on board but at a guess it's certainly 80MPH + Rob reckoned he had another 800-1000RPM left in trim, so certainly not flat out!

Thanks Andy, it was certainly a buzz, but slightly worrying in the knowledge the observer couldn't see me due to the roosters!

Its sounded great and looked quick, very quick on the last run I saw.
Great day for it and a shame we didn't have more of that weather through the summer.
