Oh my goodness, no. 200 kph on the autobahn is perfectly safe. Just ask this guy:

No I am not law enforcement. But I have spent enough time as an HPDE instructor to know that most people have no freaking clue what to do when things go wrong at 100+ MPH. Add in other traffic, deer, moose, and the deteriorating condition of our infrastructures, and I think you are insane to goo 100+ on any public road, especially in the USA. And it has nothing to do with law enforcement.

Come to think of it, it has little to do with public roads. Most people do not have the ability to deal with a problem at 100+ mph, period. I am sure any of these 5 families would agree.

Can you tell I feel passionately about this? A BMWCCA HPDE is the most fun you can have with your car, you will not jeopardize yourself or innocent bystanders, and you will learn skills that can save your life. If you want to drive 100+, do it there, not on the street.
