Speed on Two Wheels

In 1999 Richard Brown rode his rocket powered Gillette Mach 3 Challenger, which he also designed and built, on the Bonneville Salt Flats to an officially timed one way speed of 332.887mph peaking at 365mph. Unable to make a return run to secure the outright record due to technical issues relating to the poor course conditions Richard at least had the satisfaction of knowing that he had exceeded the highest speed previously seen for a two wheeled vehicle and, in fact, it was to be another seven years before anyone went faster still. Using the experience gained from the Gillette Mach 3 Challenger Richard is now back with another thrust powered two wheeled engineering speed project called Jet Reaction. This time the design utilises a turboshaft helicopter engine converted to a pure thrust turbojet complete with an afterburner.

The aim, however, remains the same, to break the Official FIM World Two Wheeled Land Speed Record which now stands at 376.373mph.

Design Speed 450mph

Current FIM Record 376.373mph

Follow Richard’s build up to the record challenge with Jet Reaction through our website, on Facebook and Twitter as the final shakedown runs are undertaken in the UK prior to the planned attempt at the Mike Cook Shootout land speed racing event on the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah in September 2015.
