Doornbos Sets Afsluitdijk-Crossing Record

Apparently, every so often, those wacky Dutch shut down the Aflsluitdijk (known as the dike that killed the Zuiderzee in '33) and hold speed trials. The previous record was 325 km/h (201mph), set by some bloke in an M5. F1 driver Robert Doornbos only managed to eke out one extra kilometer per hour over the stretch, using a Formula 1 car. We're waiting for our pal Victor Muller of Spyker to get a bug up his ass and shoot for 330. He'll do it, too, we bet. Autoblog.nl's got the video.
