Don't need to see a land mark to know that this is just insanely fast. He'll get the tranny sorted out and that record is going down.

I was fortunate enough to see this run(and all the other runs that week) . That's a mile every 7.8 seconds. I couldn't take any pictures because I didn't have time. Wayno

That is a well done video that really gives you a sensation of the speed. I watched Don Vesco Run 410 in Turbinator in 1998 and that was sensational but I think this may top that.

There aren't really any landmarks to help judge the speed, but if you look very closely and don't blink (or think of blinking), you can see the mile marker cones go by. WOW that is insane!, check those cones going by to other runs on the net at "regular" bonneville speeds. Insane!

There was a small group of crazy old geezers like me at the six mile mark. We waited six hours to see a car that drove past in six seconds. Talk about zoom-zoom! It was a great way to spend a week of retirement.

Since it was to be a 2 way run, they started at the far end so they would have everything for the turnaround available to them at the pits. Makes sense if you think about it. Wayno
