In a colliding-beam accelerator, does not relative speed of two particles exceed c ? And, does energy (generated by collision) show the mass increase of a particle ?

In accelerator, upper limit of particle's speed is c (lightspeed). But compared to what ? It will be the speed relative to accelerator (the emission theory will be valid to particles also).
