New Zealand's Fastest Woman - Word on the Street

Miriam MacMillan is the third New Zealander and first N.Z. woman to earn a 200 MPH hat

Nov 5, 2010

Miriam MacMillan is the third New Zealander and first N.Z. woman to earn a 200 MPH hat (behind her husband Doug who earned his 200 MPH hat in 2008). Qualification for the 200 mph club consists of not only exceeding 200mph, but breaking an existing record as well. By way of comparison, Miriam's CR-X ran straighter and faster than an Enzo Ferrari, which was also competing at Speedweek.

"My Honda CR-X was very well behaved" says Miriam. "It was smooth, stable and handled everything we could throw at it. It had a lot more speed in it, but I had to back off as I was on the redline. I'll be back with different gearing next year to see how fast it really goes."

Miriam's CR-X set 4 different class records during the week, a testament to the reliability of Honda engines and the hard work of the Hondata team, who was running two cars on the salt for Speedweek.

Over the seven days of competition, the Hondata CR-X set four records, with a highest one-way speed of 209 mph (336 km/h) in the F/FCC class (with nitrous oxide) and 176.578.mph in the G/GCC class (naturally-aspirated).
