Pegasus Vanguard has never failed me both times I did the mission in SV. In CoH I used the Terran scout ship and also won. MK3 engines of course, although ARG Travel with its higher speed and TER Travel with its higher acceleration are likely both viable.

Pegasus Vanguard with ARG Mk3 Travel Engines hits nearly 10 km/sec. This is much faster than 5.7 km/sec.

You need to use travel mode, not the normal combat speed.

I'm sure it's possible to do it faster if you you fly a curved course at the gate such that you can enter it at full speed and avoid the dead stop (which might make it possible with a somewhat slower ship) but this is tricky. And not necessary. The Pegasus is worth having anyway, it's a really nice ride.
Learn to use 'Flight Assist: Disabled'. Go to top travel speed, aming a bit off-gate. Hit flight assist off. Your forward speed maintains as you turn. As you close on the gate, shortly before you reach it re-enable flight assist and watch the crazy turn you take right into the gate. Disable again on the other side, and aim to the finish line and re-enable. Did this with 45 seconds to spare first try, but I had been practicing.

You have no idea how life changing the use of flight assist and travel drive has been, especially for traveling quickly with large ships. I've placed nav beacons all over about 80km off of gates and accelerators to have good targets to aim at with large or extremely fast ships.

Not impossible, I've done it in the slow and bulky eclipse with no mods, just got to know how to actually pilot your ship.

When you exit travel mode you're automatically out of flight assist so you can drift gracefully.

I finally did it with a second to spare, in a pegasus finally, but from that particular start location it was impossible in an eclipse vanguard, even flying with a perfect boost to travel mode, perfect skid in to the gate, my eclipse was too slow by over 20 seconds.

I did that first!

About 20-21 km/sec is what a normal person will get as it becomes improbable to roll better reliably. That is with spending over 2 hours re-rolling and using the best. Of course higher will be obtained if using the Yaki variant as that is even faster, but was not available back then.

Not helpful for topic creator though since you need to pass the race to unlock the modifications required to reach such speeds.

Speed is overrated. Did it with TER Mk 3 Travels. On a Rapier or something.
Tighter of course, but acceleration is king.
