C2 on standing mile in Finland.

What is the fastest speed you have heard of C2 doing in standing mile? My friend Kimmo in Finland just did 311,3kmh/193,4mph. This is one fast 65. No supercharged. Old school V8 with fuel injection and NOS. His hope was to break 300km/h (186,4mph), but he managed to go little over. I bet Zora never tought C2 could go this fast. Here is pic of the car at Joensuu Airfield where he did his record. So far fastest non-supercharged car here in Finland.

Congrats on the great run! I was glad to see the non-stock lower front spoiler as I recall hearing that C2's had "lift problems" at really high speeds.

Some update here on this. My friend Kimmo did new runs at Lappeenranta airfield. He tried to break 200mph limit on standing mile but got 196mph. Little improving, something for next summer. Here is a little clip of his runs. Enjoy.
