Chris Carr regains motorcycle world land speed record
Piloting the BUB Streamliner 'Lucky 7' at the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, yesterday, Chris Carr regained the motorcycle world land speed record with a new mark of 367.382 mph. he actually had a top speed over 372 mph!!

Still awaiting ratification by the FIA, the time was the average of the requisite two opposite direction passes and was set during a 'private time' session booked by the Denis Manning's BUB team following the tricky conditions and fire experienced at the BUB Speed Trials at the beginning of the month.

Full details and pictures will appear on the team's website shortly.

congratulations to Chris Carr and the entire BUB Racing team.

ok Dan, what NRHS kit will make my sporty that fast???

25th September 2009, 20:41
Holy shit!

Yeah, I'd like to know when that kit is going to be available.

Very cool! Congrats

So, do you think that would beat a BUSA?....Probably not in the quarter mile...wonder how fast that machine needs to be pushed before it takes off on its own?
Congrats...to the team- makes me proud to run a BUb Rhinehart exhaust-

Unfortunately Aaron and I can take no credit for this one. The #7 is owned and built by Dennis Manning who owns Bubs exhaust. We are friends with Dennis but have no actual input into the bike. the engine alone in that bike is rumored to have cost Dennis over 1 million dollars. Yes you read that right!!

372 MPH ??

Why, was he stuck in 1st Gear ????

I've seen the prints for the engine.
V-4 built to the same width as the rider.

V-4 built to the same width as the rider.
how is the motor configured? v4 like a v8 on a truck, running a driveshaft, or v4 like 2 vtwins side by side and chain drive?

I got a good close look at that 2 wheeled rocket while it was on display at the NY Int'l Motorcycle Expo. He actually took apart the front end and engine covers to explain to us what made this vehicle so unique. He answred every question, allowed us to take closeup pictures and did not seem to mind. Congratulations on setting the LSR once again.

That is excellent, I heard on a show about that bike and engine that there is still a lot more power to be made from that engine. And yes he does have a million dollars in it.............. Good job Chris and Dennis.................
