Early Report from F2 Racing

Here is an early report from this year's competition. Tales from Bonneville

I don't know much about the 90 m.p.h. bike, but we will happily claim the 117.

On Wednesday morning, I ran a 117.529 m.p.h. on the #471 Production Frame / Production Engine bike.

Picture a full size MX bike fresh from the dealer's showroom. You can see is run in this video.

Then we tore the bike apart, put on the slippery bodywork and let Kevin ride it.

On his very first run the timeslip read 123.729 m.p.h.

We had basically shown up, unloaded the bike, ran it once down the track and already had two miles an hour on the old record!

Little did we know....
