    At Loring Air force base: Randy Holbrook's world record in the 1350 production class is 205.658. The old record at Bonneville was 205.2.

    Scott Guthrie Team broke its own world record of 250 by more than 10 miles an hour.

    At 11:47 am, Sunday, August 2nd, Scott Guthrie was asked this question: "What do you think of the venue"?
    He replied " We may very well skip Bonneville for the Loring Air force Base".

  4. Come on fellas, please don't start claiming new world records unless you get the SCTA to go to Loring AFB and certify the vehicles, coarse and times.

    If you want to create your own Loring LSR records, like Maxton does, fine, just don't go down a road that will only lead you to a cliff.

    On the positive side, congradulations on pulling your project together. I wish you all nothing but continued success.

    A special thank you to all those competitors from "away" (CA, TX, KY, FL, OH, IA, TN, GA, SC, NC, VA, NY, NJ, CT, RI, MA, VT, NH and any that I have missed) who participated in adding yet one more new chapter to land speed racing and opening the door to a fast new future. The hard work and sacrifices made by the members of ECTA and LTA deserve our most sincere respect. In providing yet one more venue to those of us in search of speed, they have created real opportunity. All communities have naysayers, village explainers, and small minds and land speed racing is no exception. For two days, in remote Maine, people had fun, made new friends, went fast and broke down many barriers. Again to those who have made it possible and opened a door to the future a heartfelt thank you from a few of us who went fast and made history.
