might be of interest, a new top speed record has just been set at
Elvington for a road BIKE!

Jack Frost ran 257.3mph early this week on his hyabusa turbo road bike.
Nutter! :)

i dont know if any footage was shot, altho they were doing official record attempts for top speed and also wheelying (think thats over 160mph).
jack had already held the record at elvington for a while at 241mph i think, and he was confident of 260mph last time I spoke to him up there.
they would have been using the full runways in both directions, so prob 1.5mile flat out i'd estimate from a standing start.

Spoke to Jack this week after the run he was very pleased :clap:

He is the man who built my Hayabusa :bowdown1: :bowdown1:

He already holds the uk land speed record anyway, on an old blue and white busa. His quickest one way speed was 242, and he holds the record with 229 for the average.this was in 2000. This was done to slightly different rules.
It was an official meeting at Elvington running alongside the world speed wheelie record, which he also held in 97-98.
His quickest one way is now 257.3 and average over both directions is 243.
He had stability issues, and definitely could have hit 265mph.

He was hoping to be at TOTB but will be away, but there are 4 turbo Hayabusa cars competing at Elvington in 2 weeks.

Best regards Alan
