test of a mans character comes not from how he handles success. Not how he
reacts to hitting a home run, scoring a touchdown or winning a race. But how he
handles adversity….striking out, tackled for a loss or spinning out. Through
some extremely frustrating and difficult racing conditions at Bonneville 2014 Scott Kolb remained the positive, confident,
humble, friendly team captain…..rest assured we’ll hear more from Scott and his
Kolb Machine team. Kolb Machine Land Speed Racing
Land Speed Racing may be the ultimate challenge for man
& machine. The endeavor to not just go fast but to go faster than anyone
There were hundreds of entries for the 2014 Motorcycle Speed Trials. Each has a story......their inspiration, dreams and goals. Traveling hundreds and thousands of miles to bring their machine to Bonneville to go fast....faster than anyone else.
One great story is that of Auburn, Alabama's Dan Parker. A racer and motorcycle/car builder Dan lost his sight in a 2012 drag racing accident. He did not loose his competitive spirit and his zest for life. He designed a motorcycle to compete in the 85 cc 2 stroke class. He guides his land speed racer with a GPS system that gives him audio signals to keep him on course. Dan recorded an official top speed of 64.8 mph, claiming record speed for his class.
World’s fastest female on a motorcycle, Eva Hakansson piloted her ELECTRIC Streamliner over the salt at a AMA record top speed of 241.901 mph.
