The World's Fastest Motorcycle Riders

I had overlooked this European result:

ERIC TABOUL, of France 281.47 mph
at Santa Pod in England in 2011


OK: I also missed this ERIC TABOUL Rocket Drag bike at Bradenton FL
in November 3013: 1/4 Mile ET: 5.120 ......264.00 mph

Racing surfaces include: asphalt, concrete, dirt and salt.

**(The Finnish speed were run on a track with a maximum racing length of
about 1.0 mile, but some racers used less that that length to achieve their results.)

It is apparent from the track listings and dates that motorcycle LSR (Land Speed
Racing) is now a true international sport. When will we see Japan,
China, Brazil and the return of Russia ?

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 !
 
#25
Wow !

First new member of 2014 !




EDWARD PETROZZI
2 BAR RACING

244.033 MPH



244.033 MPH in only one (1) mile !

Can't wait to see if he has
anything left in the tanks ......

Good Job !

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 !
 
#28
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
 
#30
Wow !

First new member of 2014 !




EDWARD PETROZZI
2 BAR RACING

244.033 MPH



244.033 MPH in only one (1) mile !

Can't wait to see if he has
anything left in the tanks ......

Good Job !
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.
 
#31
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 !
 
#35
Wow: First new member of the list for 2015 !

247.8 MPH.....Tim Leeper......
Sponsored by Smithers Customs


at theTexas Mile riding the beautilul #223
Hayabusa into a terrific headwind.


Does this team have 250 mph in it's sights ?

(With no other changes, Tim will
be about #34 on "the List")
 
#37
We seem to be missing Don HASS..............

Don Hass.......GSXR1000(?)........9/2012
......243.111 mph.....WILM'TN ohio


My Oversight - Sorry Don,
and good luck this season with
the "Project Bike.."
 
#39
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......
 
#40
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 !
