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
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.

NEED FOR SPEED: KEN BLOCK'S GYMKHANA SIX -- ULTIMATE GYMKHANA GRID COURSE
Need for Speed and Ken Block present: Gymkhana SIX: The Ultimate
Gymkhana Grid Course. Learn more at: http://bit.ly/GYM-SIX
Need For Speed's Racing Advisor Ken Block built the ultimate Gymkhana GRID
course -- a real-life playground to showcase the sheer speed, fun and
exhilarating action of driving. This means all-new obstacles that help
raise the difficulty for Block to master in his Ford Fiesta ST RX43 2013
racecar, including maneuvering around a moving wrecking ball and sliding
through narrow opening cut into the sides of shipping containers. Block
also added videogame elements from Need for Speed Rivals. Watch as he
executes multiple jumps, drifts around Lamborghini Aventadors and evades
the videogame-themed Redview County cops on Segways in his own unique
style. You can almost smell the burn of the rubber as he tears up this
incredible course. So sit back and enjoy the ride.
