Some of the first reports are coming in from the 2008 R/C Speed Challenge UK Round.
It looks like Magnus Vassmar has the fastest electric speed of 104 mph and Chris had the fastest Nitro car with his twin engine Inferno 777 at 89 mph.
Chris who attended the event had these comments:
a massive thanks goes to Tony for setting up this event also thanks to his assistant (realy sorry can't remeber your name)
it was a fantastic event with many ups and downs. some spectacular crashes and awsome speeds by vassamar,
a real fun event all round
next time we need a lot more practice and setup time but its been a good learning curve Grin
