Speed camera snaps F1 driver going 202 MPH on public roads

Early yesterday morning Robert Doornbos, the backup driver for the Red Bull Formula One team, was clocked going 202 mph in his Red Bull F1 car on Dutch public roads by a Dutch Gatsometer speed camera. The company admits an older version of the camera that's still widely in use wouldn't have been able to accurately capture the F1 car. The stunt required a portion of the road that crosses the De Afsluitdijk dam to be closed for obvious safety reasons. You can check out a video of the run on the Doornbos website here.
