'Cutting Loose

A Corvette driven by American Rick Doria has just been caught traveling at 355km/h along a public road in Nevada - and the police just smiled. Every year a crazy event called the Nevada Pony Express is conducted on closed highways in the gambling state. Entrants go hell for leather along 80km of good road, winding up to a full-tilt blast through a speed trap. Another Corvette was second fastest at 349km/h with a road going Porsche 928 third, clocking 333km/h.'
