Royale RP 31 Formula Ford, back straight at Road America during a race, maybe 130+ in close drafting with faster cars. Most race cars have no speedometers and that was before telemetry, so hard to know for sure. Fast enough, in a tight group of vulnerable open-wheel vintage race cars with Armco barriers just a few feet on either side of the track; especially when you have to slow to 45-50 or so for the unforgiving partially off-camber hard left at Turn 5. Focuses the mind, frees the soul, and explains why I seldom go "fast" in my road cars.
