Motorcycle racer Guy Martin has completed his first run of the week in a purpose-built 400mph bike ahead of his world land speed record attempt.

Martin, 34, from Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, rode the Triumph Infor Rocket Streamliner at 198mph across seven miles of the course at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, USA.
http://triumphlandspeed.com/s6wmoofqgcfcsx1fbbs9lc2bjrc114


It is hoped that he will attempt to break the two-wheeled world land speed record of 376.36mph later on Saturday.






Martin and the Triumph team have been in Utah throughout the week in preparation for the attempt, which has faced a number of problems.

On Thursday, all runs were postponed due to safety concerns about the wet course but the team were hopeful the bike would be taken out on to the course on Friday.

But on Friday, the course was closed to motorcycles after Martin's vehicle passed over a rut in the track and tipped over as it was being towed to the start line.

However, Saturday saw the bike on the track for the first time this week.

Regulations require Martin to ride the motorcycle at 300mph before being allowed to attempt to break the world record.

During practice sessions over the summer, the bike became the fastest to be built by Triumph as the TT star achieved a speed of 274.2mph.

It features a carbon Kevlar monocoque construction - in which the chassis is integral with the body - with two turbo-charged Triumph Rocket III engines producing a combined 1,000 brake horsepower (bhp) at 9,000 revs per minute (rpm).

(The Triumph Rocket III is a three-cylindermotorcycle made byTriumph Motorcycles Ltd. At 2,294 cc (140.0 cu in) it had the largest-displacement engine of any mass-production motorcycle, as of September 2004)

The bike is 25.5ft long, 2ft wide and 3ft tall and is powered by methanol fue

The current motorcycle land speed world record was set by Rocky Robinson in 2010, riding the Top Oil-Ack Attack Streamliner at 376.36mph.

Guy Martin's attempt to break the two-wheel land speed record has suffered yet another setback when his 400mph bike toppled during a test run.





The 34-year-old was attempting to reach speeds of 300mph during the trial, a requirement before he attempts to break the record, when his bike slipped on a damp patch on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, USA.

This is the the latest incident to hinder the record-breaking attempt, which currently stands at 376.36mph.

Just days ago the 400mph Triumph Infor Rocket Streamliner was damaged as it was being towed into position on the start line.

The Isle Of Man TT star escaped the incident uninjured, although the 1,000 horsepower bike will undergo a full inspection before any further attempts can be made.

During practice sessions over the Summer, the bike became the fastest to be built by Triumph as Guy achieved a speed of 274.2mph. The bike is 25.5ft long, 2ft wide and 3ft tall with a 1,000 brake horsepower, producing 9,000 revs per minute

Less twisty than Isle of Man but does it have a higher average speed with its shorter straights? I know Google is my friend...

Does it come with a free coffin?

Anything past 150km/h on a bike is just suicide. Especially considering most people don’t have proper gear and don’t know how to fall properly. I understand why it exists, but at those speeds even the slightest mistake will turn you into ground meat.
My first crash was around that speed, few nics and bruises, rode the bike another 200 miles that day. ATGATT

At speed it's not so much knowing how to fall, it's being lucky to not slide into something or catch up on something and tumble.
Pretty rare in a crash that the rider gets to decide how they are coming off the bike.

Those guys are beyond Newton's laws!!!!!

Not to open my own thread, but wanted to share this:
Close to Valencia we have a new facility: Circuit de la Ribera... can't wait to test it!
Not finished but track days have started.
The blue line of water in the distance is the Mediterranean! You should do holidays over here and rent a track bike, cart or car :)

World land speed record attempts at Pendine Sands


Custom built vehicles and powerful motorbikes will be attempting to break World land speed records this weekend at Pendine Sands.



Businessman Zef Eisenberg is attempting to beat the current sand speed record of 184mph (296 km/h) on his turbine bike, just over a year after he says he nearly died trying to break the land speed motorbike record.

Honda on Wednesday showcased a new motorcycle that can stand unaided with or without a rider, using technology the firm learned from developing a walking humanoid.

Unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show, Honda's Riding Assist-e is an all-electric concept motorbike that constantly assesses its position and moves the steering bar to ensure the heavy machine stays upright.





Honda's device is only the size of a lamp and can be rigged above the front wheel.

With the system turned off, the motorcycle topples over when the rider takes his hands from it.

But when it is flipped on, the bike stays stock still as if in a magic show, even when the rider walks away from it.






more stuff from the show
