Is this affiliated to VMax, or a copycat?

Looks very Craig at first glance... and the car list looks very like Simon's...

I seem to recall Craig putting a disclaimer on his Facebook VMax200 account about no affiliation with this outfit.

Perhaps someone else might confirm if the recollection is correct?

That is correct, I make no comments about anything I may have (ahem) "heard"

Read into that what you will.

A normal Vayron would not get any where near 223mph at Bruntingthorpe.

Says they use Duxford runway for the Veyron events. It's not even one mile long so I'm not sure how they'll get it up to 200mph.

Not a hope, and theres no runoff at Dunsfold either.
In the rather over enthusiastic ride description it refers to a trap speed of only 186 which sounds more achievable.

I'm getting a few emails from people who have booked with this company only to be dissapointed so I just want to reiterate that they are nothing to do with myself or vmax200.

Very dodgy if not out and out lies, the site says you will go flat out in a Veyron.

Must be a rip off

Yup but from what I've heard rod they might have one 1001bhp factor lacking in being able to offer that particular experience!
