On 21st March 2013, a few lucky people were given the chance to try and break the magical 200mph barrier on a test track in the heart of England. After two warm-up runs - the first in a Lamborghini LP570-4 Performante and the second in a Ferrari 458 - the time had come to step up to the challenge. Slipping behind the wheel of the stunning Lamborghini Aventador, each driver was given just one chance to surpass the double-hundred speed. Eleven people took on the challenge… and we're delighted to say, all eleven beat it! Check out the pictures and video below to see the day's action.
Many thanks to our friends at ecurie25 for organising the day.

All of our competitions comply with UK gaming law, which requires them to be skill based.
We use 'Spot the Ball' as the basis for our skilled competitions as it is both widely recognised and easy to understand.
The panel of judges (typically experienced football referees and ex-international players) use their expertise to decide where the centre of the ball is. This produces a set of coordinates which are sent to independent auditors, Wilkins Kennedy, to calculate who the closest player is to those coordinates and therefore, who the winner is.
The lawyers are OnSide Law, a firm of solicitors based in London, UK. The competition auditors are Wilkins Kennedy, an international firm of accountants. They oversee the judging process to ensure the correct winner is chosen and the judging is undertaken in compliance with the law.
There can only be one winner. If a case arises where two or more players are equally close to the judges' position in a competition, the winner will be determined by calculating the next closest entry of the players in question. The person with the closest second ticket is the outright winner. If any player in this scenario has only one ticket, all players that qualify will play in another 'Spot the Ball' competition online to determine the outright winner. All other players in this scenario will receive £500 in cash and £500 in Dream Car Credit if playing the Dream Car Competition and £200 in cash and £200 in Dream Car Credit if playing the Cash Competition.
