have just had a look at the FIM World Records for 750cc Forced Induction, in 2009 Greg set/holds it at 204.291mph, ,, i recall having a conversation with him while over there last year, he said then that he felt the 750 was capable of 240mph, 8) ,,

Excellent News ,Well Done to Kim,Greg ,Jim and Ev These numbers are awesome ! I think Al Lamb of Dallas Honda did pretty well with speeds of over 250 on a 1000cc bike sounds like it has been a great few meets .

Lets not forget Ev Sholz ran 211 at Speedweek in 1000 AB/F and backed it up with 190 something with hole in the turbo where a conrod came out of the block
The previous record holder was in impound on a 121 pass
And then at BUB ran 203 with her replacement motor
Good work Ev
They make it
I make it work

Thanks again everyone
We had a lot of fun and work during the month ,
Both bikes have more in them, and the handling is much better now than last year , Kim and Neill both have vids that i will try and get up in the next few weeks
Ev did well with little seat time esp at Bubs where she turned up like a rockstar on the last day,and set her record in 2 passes .. looking forward to what she can do with the bike in March .
Bones also went well on Terrys bike , nearly getting the fastest sidecar award against a gsxr1000 powered race outfit many generations the Vincents junior, i think there was only 1 mph or so in it
Not quite sure how Jeff Lemon went i know it was good for his class , but so tied up in what i was doing sort of missed the details

A good year for both the car and bike crews that made the effort :D
