CR Turbo Engineering helped Severn Valley Motorsport achieve a World Record in their R35 GT-R aka The Hulk. 

They provided us with the following report.

On the 17th March 2012 Severn Valley Motorsport achieved a Top Speed of 218.01mph in "The Hulk" at RAF Marham.

 

The recording equipment was provided by Racelogic and we thank them for the use of the following:

 

1 x Video VBOX PRO 20hz inc External GPS Antenna (fully calibrated)
1 x Performance Box 10hz inc External GPS Antenna (fully calibrated)
2 x Performance Box 10hz inc Internal GPS Antenna (fully calibrated)

 

The reason that Racelogic decided to install so many data logging units is because they did not want any discrepancies from anyone.

 

Some of you may question why the speed is registered on MLR Forum as 217.97mph, this is because they were all using the Performance Box 10hz machines, the Video VBOX PRO is a 20hz unit and is more accurate.  That is why we ran both types of units side by side.  Hence the registered official speed is 218.01mph.

 

We also took one of their team in The Hulk to give him a feel of the acceleration of the beast.  John was shaking even on Monday.

 

This is the highest recorded top speed for a R35 GT-R anywhere in the world, not only that but the result was achieved in the wet. Heavy rain showers persisted during the course of the entire day and we have also been informed that there was a diagonal head wind against the car of approx 10mph.  Bodes well for future runs, hopefully dry day and no headwind = improved speed and time.

 

As you can see from the video the GT-R did not achieve full throttle acceleration until 4th gear, eating up valuable tarmac.  The distance from this point was well under 1 mile, however the total distance covered from 30mph to terminal speed was 1.1 miles.  We are very confident that The Hulk will achieve 220mph in 1 mile or less in the dry.

 

We are in discussions with RAF Marham about a return visit in the dry to better our own record.

We have been privileged enough to be given permission to use the video footage of the day by RAF Marham.

 

As you will see from the video at the end of the run area there are breaking zones, the first is two car widths wide and the second one is one car widths wide, not something that you wish to drive through at 220 mph. There is bravery driving in the wet at that speed, then there is being nuts taking the braking risk.  Of course the safety of both the driver and the car was of utmost importance so we aired on the side of caution and braked well before the first marker.

 
 

Just for the record we have compared the data from The Hulk with a Bugatti Veyron Supersport:

 

Speed           Time           Vehicle

 

110 - 130mph 1.90 seconds Veyron SS
110 - 130mph 1.47 seconds HULK GT-R
180 - 200mph 6.00 seconds Veyron SS
180 - 200mph 3.71 seconds HULK GT-R
