Honda Sets Land Speed Records at Bonneville

After months of preparation, a team from Honda reached a measured mile speed of 400kph on the Bonneville Salt Flats last week, setting three new world land speed records and also setting a new top speed for a Formula One car.

Here’s what www.crash.net had to say about the event:

“Honda's record attempts on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, USA, reached a fitting climax on Thursday when Alan van der Merwe piloted his Honda F1 car to three new land speed records, each eclipsing those set on the previous day, when the Bonneville 400 team finally reached a measured mile speed of 400kph.”

    Awesome acheivement. Earlier this year a 2 wheel record was also set in South Australia by an American team with their vehicle, Ack Attack. Check out the pic at Return of the Cafe Racers. I'm constantly amazed that there are people brave enough to pilot these machines at such insane speeds.
