Check in for updates and photos from The Texas Mile, October 2010 event:

Friday’s top car mph was 241 – Lamborghini Gallardo.

15mph quartering headwind on Friday had cars running almost 20mph slower than they should have been.

The SW Toyota Supra used the whole runway, plus some, resulting in a broken car.

Saturday:
Underground Racing Gallardo went end over end at 235mph. Driver OK – Car not OK.

Ford GT Takes A Bath At Mid America Motorplex

According to the tipster:

This Ford GT went off track at approx 110-115 mph after overpowering the stock tires through a high speed left hand turn. It did two full rotations before hitting the swampy area between turns 4, 5 and 6. I was on his bumper when this happened and mud and water went at least 30’ in the air.

The owner was a class act and there was only minor, albeit expensive (approx $300K car with the Gulf oil factory paint package) damage. He rinsed it off and drove it home.

So the tipster may have overexerted the price of the Ford GT with the limited edition ‘Heritage’ paint…   A 2006 Ford GT’s MSRP base price was around $150,000.
