NSR 150 @ 220 km Per Hour
Australia’s Land Speed version of the USA’s Bonneville SpeedWeek, has just been completed at Lake Gairdner South Australia. Lake Gairdner is 250 klms South West of Port Augusta. To get there we travelled 2250 klm on sealed roads then another 180 klm along some of the bumpiest, dustiest dirt and gravel roads in Australia’s outback.
I competed in 2 classes on my 2001 Honda NSR 150 SP.
Production PP175 Class (no external modifications permitted ). I ran 108.25 MPH (172.5 KLMH) thats 4 MPH more than the USA record.
Modified MPSG 175 Class (fitted Tyga Performance exhaust, TTGA Step Kit, Pod filter, Jet change and removed approx 10kgs of weight). I ran 115.283 MPH ( 185.5 KLMH)
Now we are off to race at Bonneville with the Blown 100 which claimed 2 World Record speeds at Lake Gairdner. https://www.facebook.com/AAALandSpeed....
