I'm a newb and have gone (on radar) 100ish with a 60"JW. You were going faster IMO, my guess is 135.

I stand by 100ish. The laps are very tight, which makes it look faster.

75-85 mph

Edit - Watched it again and I see a few laps that are significantly faster. Still hard to tell though-

28-32mph....my best guess

I can see your camera trickery there

j/k. 1.5m w ballast id estimate 80-100mph

Cool to see new faces and places. I think 100'ish is a good call. One lap around 2:16 where you say 'that was a little low', and punch out was definitely a bit quicker IMO.

Good one guys. Looking forward to more.

It's a beautiful moment when someone "figures it out", lucky you got that on camera!

about 60 - 80mph -- I know because I do a lot at that sort of speed : )

Hey, you were going great there! flat top ds is really hard cause youve got to go so low. Wait till you get to a good big slope with a deep backside and you wont know yourself. Nice one!
