BUB Streamliner Sets new Land Speed World Record
Today the streamliner Seven driven by Chris Carr archived the new world record of 350.884 mph with a one way pass of 354.832 mph through the measured mile. This record is succeeding the world record set the previous day by Top 1 Ack Attack at 342.797.
"Today was absolutely unbelievable," said an elated Carr. "BUB Enterprises, the Ford Quality Checked Certified Pre-owned program and I made history today. And more amazing than that is this bike still has a lot left in ’er. I can’t wait to get back out there again - if need be - for another couple passes."
Carr left the Bonneville Salt Flats (Utah) staging area today, SPEED helicopters with TV cameras mounted on them in tow, and dialed the Ford Quality Checked-backed BUB streamliner up to 354 mph - shattering the previous record set this past Sunday on the opening day of the FIM/AMA Sports - International Motorcycle Speed Trials by BUB. The BUB/Ford QC team then re-grouped and got Carr back out well within the two hour limit, and his second pass was recorded at 346 mph, giving him a two run average speed of 350.8 mph.
