COSWORTH TOP SPEED RECORD SHATTERED BY ROD TARRY!!!
16/9/04: Once again Performance Ford were at Bruntingthorpe using the latest Datron satellite timing gear, and confirmed that Rod Tarry's car had broken the previous Sapphire Cosworth top speed record of 183.27mph (previously held by Rod Tarry also) and the Cosworth top speed record of 188mph with a new record of 201.8mph in his 613bhp/507lb trq + 150bhp NOS Sapphire Cosworth!!! The first road legal Cosworth of any variant to pass 200mph!!! At 201.8mph the car still had masses of speed left in it, however, due to Bruntingthorpe airstrip only being 1.7miles long, the full potential of this car will never be able to be proven over such a small distance, as at 180mph+, the car is covering 3 miles a minute!!!
