A participating vehicle must be street-legal, registered, insured and equipped with DOT-legal tires. While beating the all-time record isn't required, it is something every participant should strive for. Rosenbaum holds the all-time record of 3min and 10sec in a Ferrari F40, while five new members were inducted into the 3:41 Club back in 2011.
