SPEEDWEEK-UTAH

Postby 70mmkryps » Sat Oct 06, 2012 1:30 pm

well i found this photo from august this year-i am laid up at home with a bust left 5 & 6 ribs-slammed into the bowl at potters bar-
the wheels are pneumatic x wheels and worked great on the salt-really grippy and responsive-
we also got our 31 year old motorcycle to go 164.429MPH
hence the monkey suit

i am lucky to have raced there twice 09-2012-in the first picture you can see the BBC film crew-they made a 2 hour documentary 'a summer of speed' on in january 2013-
the bike is a 1981 suzuki gsx1100-heavily modified-
the ribs are easing up- ~..

just went 164.429MPH-

and qualified for my C licence-

we were the only team with skateboards on the salt-we met the guy with the XT wheels , but he wasn,t racing-the place is unique for sure-and there,s a skateable dirt bowl nearby-and i found a pool too both needed work but we were busy racing-next time out...

fairing would add up to 35mph-nitrous would add another 150 BHP-
