    All with the seat belt chime dinging away.
    They are nuts

    Re: 323km/h or 201mph - 997GT3 - VIDEO!!!

    That's not a seatbelt chime, it's the aftermarket Insane Detector.

    At night too..., wow.

    Re: 323km/h or 201mph - 997GT3 - VIDEO!!!

    Re: 323km/h or 201mph - 997GT3 - VIDEO!!!

    That's a good summary.

    I watch them and am mostly thankful nobody got killed; after it's over I ask myself, "So what?"

    That's not quite true because I usually watch the whole thing.

    LOL, must have been a bad sending unit b/c if failed to immobilize the driver.

    Re: 323km/h or 201mph - 997GT3 - VIDEO!!!

    MMD/Roadtrip, you both are right. This guy is no smarter than the guy in the Testarossa doing in excess of 160kph on a two lane road with oncoming traffic holding the video camera in one hand and trying to drive with the other. To prove what? How big his ego is.

    Re: 323km/h or 201mph - 997GT3 - VIDEO!!!

    This talk is what makes these boards boring IMO. It is usually our American friends who criticise speeding in public. In my high opinion there are many more matters that should be criticised before that. Driver education. Living in the states for 5 years I am pretty confident to say that people drive like robots in a constant motion when theere is a need to make an emergency maneuver instead they cannot respond and crash. Nobody expects the unwanted. They eat, talk on the cell, do make up etc. They turn their head when changing lanes instead of adjusting the mirrors(this is one of the most stupid things I have seen in the world, it is so dangerous)

    I am glad I live in a place where I can drive with freedom. First rule of driving here is using the mirrors driving with extreme cautions at all times and etc. I enjoy my car alot and explore its potential alot on the highways.

    Somthing that is boring to you might be enjoyment for me while something that is boring for me is a reason for you to enjoy doing some public awareness speeches here.

    Where is it going to go? Are you going to give a ban punisment to the poster of this video. I would rather talk about the video than criticise. If you do not like it donot post it. If everyone does that it will turn into a pissing contest here. I prefer to enjoy the car talk not reading public awareness critisism. If you open a thread about it thats fine but this is like highjacking the posters thread.

    Sorry, but that sort of behavior, especially at night, is irresponsible and in the public arena, it endangers others. I'm not going to sit aside and let it go without those reminders any more than I would a post where the author shows how fun it can be to drive a GT3 stoned.

    You sound defensive, but you simply can't justify your position, no matter how good a driver you are. Can you always predict what that minivan with 3 kids in it (doing 90km/hr because grandma is behind the wheel and she can't see so well at night) is going to do as you approach at over 300 km/hr?

    Accidents always happen to people who don't expect them. Spare the rest of us the risk you place upon us by abusing the privilige society affords you to drive, and save it for the track, the salt flats, the straightaway, etc.

    You can still enjoy your sportscar without being that reckless. Besides, a monkey could go that fast in a straight line. Boring.

    Well I wrote what I wrote very generally and did not take this video specially. The grandma in your example should not be driving at all. I do not see any other way and here everybody expects everything you will get passed by Civics doing 180 km/h on the autobahn. It is common.

    You can always PM the poster and satisfy your urge to correct the behaviour (English is my second language so I do not know if that is appropriate) Now this thread became nothing related to the title thanks to you guys and thanks to me since I became part of the highjacking by expressing the counter point of view.

    Sorry but as I said speed should be the least of your worries. I still stand with what I wrote in my first post.

    Ok, well let's stop talking about the safety and rationale for going over 300 km/hr on public roads (where old ladies like that do drive their grandchildren around) and get back to talking about how cool that video is.

    That's nonsense. You know they don't let women drive in Saudi Arabia .
    But seriously, if a driver doesn't check their mirrors and signal properly (so that there are at least two to three seconds in between initiating the turn signal and actually switching lanes), then he is a danger to others. I have had several dangerous situations at low speeds due to drivers liket hat and I tend to surmise that it is THEY who are the problem, not the fast drivers (think about it - you engage the turn signal, wait a couple of seconds, the guy behind you will start braking an will soon be doing much less - glance the mirror again before switching the lane and there is no way anythign bad can happen).

    Re: 323km/h or 201mph - 997GT3 - VIDEO!!!

    now another video, 997GT3 - 320km/h
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JjnNl2HI6w

    Re: 323km/h or 201mph - 997GT3 - VIDEO!!!

    I make this 50 mile trip thru rural area three or four times a week. I know the particular roads very well. It's boring to go 50-55 mph. The Porsche gets up to 100mph+ so fast and brakes down fast too. I find myself hitting 100+ often BUT ONLY in areas of road which have zero traffic and zero pedestrians and zero houses and no hidden driveways (none of this is an exaggeration).

    When there's a curve I slow down and pay attention. When there's an intersection I slow down and pay attention. When there's a car coming the opposite direction I slow down and pay attention (could be a cop! ).

    This to me is proper driving: always regulating your speed and technique depending on the terrain (also watching for opportunities for cops to ambush me). Driving on familiar roads is an important consideration too.

    It's alot of work: to get someplace fast and maintaining a good degree of safety. Alot of work to avoid getting nailed by cops. BUT that's why I drive the Porsche.

    What "kills" me is I could be thrown in jail for this "self-regulating" behavior when speeds pass the arbitrary 100mph point.

    Problem with the video, IMHO, is they had to be determined at the outset to hit top speed no matter what. It was night and nothing was going to stop them from accomplishing their goal except a major accident. Not very good "self-regulation."


    Re: 323km/h or 201mph - 997GT3 - VIDEO!!!

    The video appears to be shot in Belgium.
