I think i have found another way to satisfy my need for speed that may be a little cheaper than the P-51

Actually Noone read the small print...the rookie course gives you speeds up to 65 but if you return for the "race experience" I am pretty sure you get the full meal deal up to 135 mph.

Im with you bones, a definite need for speed. I would love to drive the monster mile, but hubby is too fearful of me doing that so i havent YET. funny the average speed on the track that people pay to drive is 65mph. Hell i do that on 1-95

During the last few years, Vancouver streets have seen a great deal of carnage from youth racing expensive cars at high speed over city streets. Only a few mile up the Fraser River Valley, we have Mission Raceway, a pro competition drag strip.

Last year (and it seems no one was aware of this until it appeared on the local news, last November), one of the senior people behind Mission's operations began a program for young racing wannabees. Financing of the low operating costs is covered by donation, and the young bucks are given a twenty-minute safety course. Then, they're pitted against one another in drag races using their own cars. It's a simple program (Sunday afternoons), keeps the kids off the streets, the locals safe, and everyone has a good time, legally and safely.

You should see some of the cars these kids arrive with. I guess some have rather abundant allowances!

Holy Crap. But, I guess it's better that they only kill themselves.

Planes are probably safer

They are given a rudimentary safety course, primarily in how to control and stop their vehicles. Two cars at a time race, on parallel tracks separated from one another. I suppose they could roll a car, but not much more, given that the tracks are straight drag strips. I think the idea is to allow them to punch that accelerator to the floor, getting the thrill of speed. There are no turns or such.
