    China, Brazil and the return of Russia ?



    Thanks to PiPPi of Sweden for the Drag information.

    Thanks to Speedduck for the Finnish results.

    ** Conditional results, see below

    iB::Aihe::Suomen "virallinen" +200mph lista

    Mr. Duck lists the results of the last two weeks (July 2012), and gives us the link.
    (It is not clear to me if these results are based on a timing trap, radar, GPS, data
    or other method, but we will keep them on the list until there is a complete clarification)

    All speeds listed are OFFICIAL speeds. No GPS from “individuals,â€￾

    Not all timing organizations use the same speed measuring equipment.

    If you have additions or corrections, please FIRST PM me, or post.

    OBSERVATIONS FOR THE 2013 SEASON:

    Five (5) new members on the list, including several
    in the 1/4 mile, and even a 750cc 2-stroke,
    but nobody new going over the
    prestigious 250 mph mark in 2012.

    Ride safe and be lucky and fast in 2014 !

    Re: Becci Ellis Fastest Woman @ 248.5 mph !

    Looks like England's

    "Becci" Ellis

    has moved into the
    undisputed lead for
    "WORLD'S FASTEST WOMAN"
    at Elvington race track in England.

    Her VERY impressive 248.5 MPH will
    move her up to 31st on "The List,"
    with only a few folks ahead of her.

    This is the first "Good" speed of the year,
    and she has the chance to "make the number"
    before the 2014 season is over !

    Wish her good luck !

    244.033 MPH in only one (1) mile !

    Can't wait to see if he has

    Re: Becci Ellis: Undisputed World's Fastest woman Motorcycle Rider

    Looks like England's

    "Becci" Ellis

    has absolutely claimed
    undisputed lead for

    "WORLD'S FASTEST WOMAN"



    Her VERY impressive 264.1 MPH

    this weekend at Elvington race track in England.
    will move her up to the TOP TEN on "The List,"
    with only a few folks ahead of her.

    This is the BEST speed of the year, anywhere,
    by anybody, man or woman.

    Earlier today, Becci smashed a 261.6 MPH pass,
    following yesterday's also record breaking run of 260.4 mph

    For two-run traditionalists, that's a 262.9 mph !

    A three (3) run average of over 260 mph

    Three runs over 260 MPH on a sit-on motorcycle has
    been done by only a small handful of folks, and Becci Ellis is one !

    Fabulous !

    Mika Syren on turbo Hayabusa 257.900mph
    at Elgington August 2014



    (HE says it's street legal and he runs on pump fuel E-85)

    Mika has been helping "The List" with Finnish
    results under his screen name of Speeduck (see above)

    So: Bonneville Speed Week was rained out, and the
    long slog toward the end of the year continues......

    BUT:

    One new list member over 240 mph

    One new list member over 250 mph

    One new list member over 260 mph


    Great job, guys and girls

    Turned out that yes, he had a lot left !
    250.+++ MPH at the Loring AFB
    event this past weekend.

    Racers earning time-slips over 250 mph-
    up to 299 mph earn what is called in the
    USA, a "AA" competition license.

    There are probably fewer than three dozen
    such license holders in the world.


    Now, Ed has his....

    More details as they are available.

    Nice printed piece about the "grandmotherly" Angle Paws, who at age 46
    has set the women's outright record at 264 MPH.

    Brit mother Becci Ellis smashes land speed record by going 264mph on motorbike | Daily Mail Online

    Now having a good look at the bike, one can see aditional horsepower
    in the exhaust system, and additional speed in the aerodynamics.

    I am willing to bet that 275 MPH is possible with an open exhaust
    (just remove the silencer and fit bigger exhaust pipe),
    and with a better "tail" on the bike.

    History beckons........

    Somehow, we forgot:

    Don Hass 9/2012 243.111

    with the current track record at the Wilmington Ohio track.

    We'll add him to the list next time we update.

    Congratulations Don: 1st list-member
    joining from the Ohio track.

    And pretty fast for only 1000cc
    and modified-frame class aero !

    Our friend KEN12R reports good news today
    from the meet in England:

    Jack Frost on the other hand was on fire
    with FIVE 260 mph runs mostly in the afternoon after
    the wind dropped with a best last run of 263.912 mph
    getting very close to Becci's (Ellis) track record.


    That will move Jack up from 20th
    to maybe 10th place on "The List"

    Once you get over 260 MPH,
    the competition thins out......

    Ken 12R also draws our favorable attention to :

    Les Marsh pushed his best speed to 242.198 mph

    "The List" is limited to the fastest 50 members, but
    we will happily mention Les's great accomplishment !
