Why didn't the conductor put a bit more gas and break the maglev record yesterday? 574 is so close to 581km/h

I don't believe it makes such a difference if the record would have been 582 km/h rather than 574 km/h. What Alsthom wanted to prove was simply that high speed rail was still competitive and had still room for development compared with the maglev technology.

We have trains running at 320 km/h in commercial use everyday in France. Granted it's slower than the maglev, but high speed rail remains cheaper to build and to maintain than maglev does. At such a speed, a high speed rail line between San Diego, LA and San Francisco could be competitive against airplanes.

Exactly. Moreover, the new Alstom AGV High Speed Train is already designed for 350km/h in commercial use, which may sound to make not so much difference in European countries, but which may be quite important at the US or Chinese scale.

Maglev is more expensive to build, but cheaper to maintain (at ~300km/h). This is maglev's strongest point, not its speed.
