FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE THE TIMINGS?
We ask participants to arrive between 9am and 9.30am. After a safety briefing and a chance for refreshments participants will undertake a low speed safety lap and following this we commence Vmax activities, we run continuously until 3.30pm.
ARE SPECTATORS ALLOWED AT VMAX200?
Unfortunately not. We allow one driver plus passenger per car.
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 A COMPETITION?
No, you only go as fast as you are comfortable with, there is no pressure and we encourage all drivers (even former participants) to build up
slowly and carefully until they become accustomed to the speed, conditions and braking required on the day as these can vary due to weather conditions and from car to car.
HOW DO I KNOW MY “VMAX”?
We use laser speed traps to measure your vehicle’s speed. We also use radar guns at the start line to measure 0-60, 0-100, 1/4 mile and 1/2 mile times.
WHAT TYPE OF CARS COME TO VMAX?
Everything and anything from Koenigsegg, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, Aston Martin, Lotus, Noble, Ultima,
AMG, BMW M cars and Audi RS, Maserati, TVR and also a very surprising Nissan Qashquai which clocked 237mph!
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 strongly advise are taken.
On arrival at Vmax200 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 Koenigsegg One:1 holds the current record at 245.60mph set on 29th September 2018.
MY CAR IS LIMITED TO 155MPH, WHAT IS THE POINT OF ME COMING?
The aim of the day is to drive your car as fast as you feel comfortable with in a controlled environment. Many drivers have had a fantastic day without even reaching their limiter. There are also companies who can remove the speed limiter if you would like, we are happy to advise. Please note this may invalidate your warranty and you should check first.
