Will Guinness Book Get New Land-Speed Record?

Starting at sunrise on Monday, March 6 (Sunday afternoon in the U.S.), a team of U.S. motorcycle racers will attempt to become only the third team in 27 years to establish a new FIM World Land-Speed Record and enter the Guinness Book of World Records. Led by streamliner designer and former racer Mike Akatiff, the Top-1 "Ack Attack" team will make its record run during the annual Australia Speed Week, the seasonal alternative to Bonneville Speed Week in the U.S.

Although the unlimited two-wheel world record has been broken only 13 times in the past 70-plus years, experts say the Top-1 team's chances of setting a new world record look good. During an unofficial record run at Bonneville last October 16, the team already shattered the current record of 322 mph with a 328.3 mph run.
