    Nice list and thanks for including us Finnish fastest riders in the list as well.

    On behalf of TeamForceMajor, could you please put "TFM" as sponsor for Antti Pietilä, Jari Määttä and Teemu Tenhula. Also if it's somehow possible to be seen that we are driving a NOS bike instead of turbo would be nice. :)

    Thanks,

    jarim

    Jarim: I think I can fit in what you ask for.

    The next time the list is scheduled to be updated
    is after the LORING AFB meeting in Maine this
    coming weekend.

    Probably also update after the
    SCTA Bonneville Speed Week
    in August.

    **(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.

    Russell: I have a lot of experience, knowledge
    and work tied up in this list.

    I certainly can't stop you from re-posting it,
    but it would be a courtesy to me if
    1) you would ask first, before re-posting and
    2) include what YOU highlighted,
    so I might get at least
    a little credit for the work I have done
    in bringing this information to you.....

    Texas's own AL LAMB, on the Bonneville salt flats,
    ran the FIM - supervised flying Kilo at 252.3 MPH.

    He will pprobably make another attempt in the next two (2) hours.

    Very fast for a 1,000cc bike !

    Re: World's Fastest Motorcycle Riders: AL LAMB

    Ten minutes ago:

    AL LAMB @ Bonneville: kilo 260.599 MPH

    I believe this is the first official time
    over 260 MPH for an open-wheel,
    sit - on 1,000cc motorcycle !

    Good Job !
