    One (1) listing PER PERSON.
    Unless otherwise listed,
    their single fastest speed
    In the standing start mile.

    Bonneville is flying start mile.

    Some are ¼ mile standing start.


    Above are the names of the riders (and sponsors)
    that arethe fastest “sit-on” riders
    in the world – no streamliners.

    Track lengths include: ¼ mile, ½ mile, 1 mile ,
    1.3 mile, 1.5 mile,distance not recorded and
    Bonneville style unlimited distance.

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

    **(The Finnish speeds 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 ?

    Speedduck reports from Finland:

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


    1. Jorma Karjalainen (2jorma2), Kawasaki ZZR1400 ANY10 Turbo, Joensuu 2012, PerformanceBox, 408.54kmh (253.909mph)
    2. Jari Määttä (jarim), Hayabusa Gen1 1570cc NOS, Halli 2011, PerformanceBox, 390.14kmh (242.473mph)3. Teemu Tenhula (tenhulttio), Hayabusa Gen1 1570cc NOS, Halli 2011, PerformanceBox, 388.37kmh (241.373mph)
    iB::Aihe::Suomen "virallinen" +200mph lista

    There is some question about whether the Fininsh results
    are On-board data, GPS or time traps.

    A parallel question is whether this is from a "sanctioned event"

    It certainly seems to be an "organaized event,"
    and not an "individual attempt."

    Looking forward to a happy time here.

    There is a quotation going around,
    properly attributed to me, that reads:

    There are two great periods
    in Motorcycle Land Speed racing:

    BH and AH

    Before Hayabusa and
    After Hayabusa.

    I am pretty sure I quoted you on that in at least one magazine article in the past.

    Welcome to the board Scott

    Above are the names of the riders (and sponsors) that are the fastest
    “sit-onâ€￾ riders in the world – no streamliners. Includes ¼ mile, ½ mile,
    1 mile , 1.3 mile, 1.5 mile and Bonneville

    **(The Finnish speed were run on a track with a maximum racing length of
    about 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,
    Brasil and the return of Russia ?


    Thanks to PiPPi of Sweden for the Drag information.

    Quickest and fastest bike list update - Page 91

    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.

    Welcome Scott,

    If I could make one quick edit for Billy Shoemaker. His 269 at Mojave in 2011 was done in just 1.0 mile, not 1.5 miles. An even more amazing feat!

    Truely amazing - especially for a man his age.

    Editing is cumbersome here, but we will get-er-done.

    Thanks for the info.

    Hi,

    Scott, thanks for publishing this list and also including us Finnish riders to it.

    If it's not too much to ask, please add "TFM" as sponsor to Antti Pietilä's, Jari Määttä's and Teemu Tenhula's results. And if it's somehow possible, nice thing would also be to seen that we are driving a NOS bike rather than turbo. :)

    On behalf of TeamForceMajor landspeed team,

    Jari Määttä
