Motorcycling: Aaron Wilson sets new record in 1650cc A-PF class

In October 2010, Aaron Wilson set a new 2-way average speed record of 195.264 mph in the 1650cc A-PF class at the 2010 Bonneville World Finals. Motorcycle enthusiasts from around America and the world congregated at the Bonneville Salt Flats near Wendover, Utah, to see the power bikes do battle.

Mr Wilson works at NRHS V-Twin Performance located in Longmont, Colorado. The NRHS Racing Team have set the record for the “Fastest American V-Twin” at Bonneville in six out of the last 8 years. He told The Global Herald:

The NRHS bike went straight as an arrow and had more than enough power to get the job done. 203mph was an easy mark. Some gremlins kept us from making back-to-back 200mph passes but we still beat the old record by about 26mph, which is an eternity in land speed racing. I’m sure we can get much more out of though.

Several records were set on the sunny flats in October 2010 including top times for Scott Guthrie Racing.
