Hype Lap: Gil De Ferran’s 241MPH Lap At California Speedway

This is an oldie but a goodie.  Its been almost 9 years now since Honda All-Star driver Gil De Ferran provided hard evidence that a Champ Car (back in the C.A.R.T. days) could go over 235mph.  At California Speedway during a closed session he rocketed his ground missile around the 2 mile oval to the tune of 241mph.  It was one of the best motorsport memories I have from back then.
