Norris, as you know, I have raced cars for most of my life beginning at age 16. I am now pushing 80. My wife and I do a lot of highway driving in Canada and the USA and I am constantly appalled at the incompetency of a great cross- section of drivers, particularly in Ontario. Mark is advocating further disasters with his proposal to increase the limit to 120 in our province. Most of today's drivers cannot handle 100 safely. Speed in an automobile is exhilarating, but only in a controlled environment. There is no greater thrill than running the back straight at Mosport at 130mph. You want to run your wheels at high speed to test the size of your cojones? If you can't afford (or are too old) to get into a formal racing program, do as I am doing, sign on with Apex Driver Training and get your kicks doing laps at Mosport.

Tune up your car it becomes fast. You now have a fast car, you need to drive and test it like hell if you want to. Hello, this isn't a game - life isn't. You should either race and/or be logical about what you do.
