Tony Pond IOM TT Challenge Rover Vitesse 100mph lap record

In 1990 Tony Pond one of the greatest British drivers laps the Isle of Man TT course in a Rover 827 Vitesse averaging 102 mph. For me this is an incredible lap in a car that is far better than it was given credit for. Can you imagine someone trying that in a Ford Granada or BMW 520 or Citroen, Renault, Vauxhall or any other similar priced cars in the Rover price range. As said below by liverush24 this was to show how good the Rover is and at the same time Tony Pond showed how brilliant a driver he is. He did that lap with an average of over 100mph through those narrow lanes and country roads, find other 100mph average laps and get a true perspective of the achievement. Higgins lap to is impressive and a great achievement but done in a modern lightweight state of the art, turbo charged rally car with computer controlled 4 wheel drive to save you in big moments, ABS etc etc, Ponds lap is in an 80's front wheel drive production car with a about 180hp, that is truly brilliant.

Dave Steele killed in sprint car crash
Veteran Sprint car driver Dave Steele was killed in a tragic Sprint car crash Saturday March 25, 2017 at approximately 8:53 pm at Desoto Speedway. His car made contact with another sprint car as he attempted to pass on the outside between Turn 1 and 2 on the opening lap of the 35-lap feature race. His car spun, hitting the wall hard on its left side, breaking a wing support loose from the impact. The race was immediately red-flagged, and track officials went straight to his car to check on him. No official word was given as to his condition at the time. An ambulance was summoned, and arrived shortly thereafter. He was removed from the car by EMS on a backboard and taken to the ambulance for examination. A short time after that, track officials announced that the event had been canceled and no further racing could be conducted that evening, No immediate word on Steele's condition was given. Sadly, I later learned that he had been killed, it broke my heart to hear that news. Here is a link to one of many news stories covering the tragic loss of a great driver. No one can ever replace such an incredibly talented wheel man like Dave Steele. http://www.foxsports.com/motor/story/dave-steele-killed-sprint-car-crash-de soto-speedway-032517
