Reading through the USRA results  Team Vesco  runs  482.16999 on Sept. 14th and   483.12369 on Sept. 15th for average 482.646 on the two runs (noted that on both runs slowing through the exit!).

Not being there unsure if the return run was run within the correct time frame, thus the question, is this new wheel driven record?

Either way great results

It is.

Also reported that they were trying to up it again, but something went wrong.

The (one hour) time limit only applies to official FIA records.   There is no "official" record for "wheel-driven cars".  In this case, the record is actually for the (SCTA/BNI & USFRA) T-3 class at Bonneville.  Coincidentally, it just happens to be the fastest record for cars that are wheel-driven.

There won't be any FIA records set at Bonneville this year, as the 2018 FIA/FIM-sanctioned Shootout has been cancelled.

absolutely wonderful

thanks guys for the confirmation.

It has been a great year on the salt, good to see Nish getting close to 400 as well.

World of speed could be another good meet if track condition hold.

Look forward to seeing a recap on the records set at the USRA meet, hopefully they will post on their website.   https://saltflats.com/

The real reason for no FIA attempts this year or for the forseeable future is not for lack of interest.  It is because the salt will not support it. Running toward floating mountain has proven able to provide the speeds necessary for half of a record attempt. But the salt on the far end is so thin it cannot provide the traction necessary for a decent return run.
Until the pumping project really moves forward with positive salt lay down, we won't see any high speed FIA records set at Bonneville.
