Every speedo reads different. 110 or 108 doesn't matter mine will go faster. It won't top out though like a SVTF will..

The track paces us at 75 to 80 miles an hour in single file. There have been the occasional lag a gap and mash on it in the corner.
But unless you have some wicked acceleration you wont get much over 85 or 90. If you break up the pack you will be moved to the bottom of the track and escorted off by some big burly diesel trucks.
There will be a lot of cars there and they will want to get everyone in.
