FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

HOW MANY TIMES WILL I BE ABLE TO DRIVE ALONG THE RUNWAY AT THE EVENT?

The simple answer is, within reason, as many times as you would like to. We limit the number of cars at each event to ensure everyone has
enough time on the runway. Some drivers are content with 2 or 3 runs, some
drive all day, running out of fuel before time!

 

IS VMAX PURELY THE STRAIGHT RUNWAY?

Not always, depending on the runway we have the “launch zone” where 0-60 can be tested followed by the
runway and then a series of turns to enjoy on the way back to the waiting zone..

IS VMAX A COMPETITION?

No, you only go as fast as you are comfortable with, there is no pressure and we encourage drivers to build up
slowly and carefully until they become accustomed to the speed and conditions on the day,

 

HOW DO I KNOW MY “VMAX”?

We use a variety of methods to record speed from Databoxes in cars to radar guns and laser speed traps to accurately track your speed.

 

WHAT TYPE OF CARS COME TO VMAX?

Everything and anything from Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, Lotus, Noble, Ultima,
AMG, Bmw M cars and Audi RS, Maserati, TVR and also a very surprising Nissan Qashquai which clocked 207mph!

 

WHAT SAFETY MEASURES DO YOU UNDERTAKE?

Prior to the event we ask for each drivers history and medical conditions, we give advice on vehicle checks which we advise are taken.
On arrival at Vmax drivers are given a full safety briefing and low speed awareness lap of the circuit. Drivers run singly until they are confident.
We also never operate without a full safety and fire crew with a paramedic and we also have all appropriate public liability insurance in place as
well as a team of marshals who will offer advice and guidance at every step. Nobody gets onto the runway until they are fully confident.
If anything occurs during the event we halt proceedings until the course is completely safe for everyone. Safety is paramount to us.

 

WHAT IS THE HIGHEST VMAX RECORDED?

The BHP Koenigsegg One:1 reached 240mph driven by Oliver Webb at our 2016 Hypermax IV event

 

MY CAR IS LIMITED TO 155MPH, WHAT IS THE POINT OF ME COMING?

With prior arrangement we can have the limiter removed for you.
