Adrian here.   cool

I live in Northern Maine and race with my 2007 Toyota Yaris S sedan. I have had previous dealings for the most part with American Muscle, but for some rrason got the Land Speed bug with this car. I love the sport. Been a lurker here for a while. I am super pumped about the LTA Main Event coming up in July. Not sure if I will make the Harvest Event LDW.  I currently run in H/PS. My goal is to show what a supposed econobox with a 1.5l has the ability to do.

Tell us more about your Yaris -- I didn't know they had a turbo model.

Adrian, I think you should go to the registration page and correct your Profile.  It's got you listed as not living in northern Maine.  Put down your town and state - or even just "northern Maine", okay?  Thanks.  Welcome to the Forum.  It's a fine place to hang out.

Hi, Im Dave from South Australia and compete at Lake Gairdner in the MPS/G 250 class. Ive had a look round and am having trouble finding the current record for this class, or any other 250 cc bike class for that matter. Can some one point me in the right direction please? Ive found some old ones, but nothing recent.

I ride a RGV250 Suzuki and broke my record that I set last year, 140.46 MPH. (131.21 last year) I was going to change to the Fuel class next year but if the current record is within reason ill continue in the Gas class and see how it pans out.

Thanx
Dave

We'll help you -- if you tell us which venue you're interested in.  Bub?  SCTA?  Etc.?

Thanx Stan. I was looking for the Fastest speed achieved on a road based 250, eg not a factory road racer. I suppose SCTA would be the most relevant as thats the flag we run under.

Ive found a few posts like this one but nothing that looks current.

Thanx

RGV,
I've been following you guys on DLRA and am very impressed with your efforts.  For SCTA records, just go here: http://www.scta-bni.org/Bonneville/Records/BNI_records.htm  For BUB records go here: http://www.speedtrialsbybub.com/2011_event/index-2011.html, and scroll down to "2014 supplemental regulations" and download the rulebook.  The records are at the end of the rule book.

Ciao! My name is Jonathan Madonia and owner of Manderioli Engineering.

I have decided to take my knowledge of engineering and test my capabilities on the salt. Since I have yet to visit the flats I wanted to experience everything there is during speed week at once. Currently finishing the build of my motorcycle frame with hopes to compete in 2015.

Howdy, Jonathon.  Welcome to our Forum.  I expect this will become a favorite site for you as you learn about land speed racing.  Would you please be so kind as to back to the registration page and fill out your location in the Profile, please?  That way we'll know where you are -- so that we might be available to visit to share some great bench racing or maybe even have you show one of us just what the heck you're doing.

See you on the salt.  Come on out during 2014 -- just to spectate.  It'll be very worth your while to visit before showing up with a race bike.

Hello all from another newcomer to the forum, and probably to the speed week this year (as volunteer or spectator), and as a driver the following years.

I am a Spanish engineer, found of speed, cars and motorcycles as long as I can remember.

Look forward to seeing you guys on the salt.
