HOLY CRAP... dig (the young American) ben boz's trap speed... only 8mph off the "double ton"...!!! all's terblanche needs is to give the redesigned 999 a slightly better Co/D than the mille's (not holding my breath though) and it'll be there on the regular baby...!!! gotta love racing in the cool, dense "turbocharged" air of sea level. WAAAHHHOOO...!!! :) copy/paste from amasbk...

Haga pull the same speed during the race (308kph). I didn't realize Phillip Island was such a fast venue. Last year it rained and the year before I missed the race so this was the first dry event that I had seen.
