    You might want to ask over at landracing.com I've been looking at their forums for speedweek updates. Also, it is my understanding (never been to Bonneville) that going 200mph isn't necessarily enough to be a member. I think you have to set a record and the record has to be over 200mph (you might know more about this than I do but figured I should mention it). Good luck.

    as far as I can tell, Trillium Muir, age 28, is presently the youngest female of the 200mph club, IIRC, Nadine Endacott(age 17) attempted to make it into the ranks in 2007, but missed the mark.
     
  4. Joe Law (Grumpy Old Men) from West Virginia had a young lady in the seat of his lakester 2 or 3 years ago. She worked for a technology company who put some sponsorship money in the car in exchange for the ride.

    I'm thinking of building a roadster to race in, at 24 years old I think I might qualify for youngest female racer. Thanks for the help guys!

    who cares age wise 200 mph is 2oo mph ,,the rush alone is worth it
     
  7. Trying to break a 2 class record in a Roadster is going to be VERY difficult. These guys have been pounding on those records for years. To go 200+ does NOT put you in the Red Hat 200 mph club, you must break a record as well.
    All that said - GO FOR IT!

    By the way, does anyone know how Kugel's daughter Jerilyn went this year? I know she went 187 in the roadster last year and her brother went 201. The car went 215 last I heard this year.

    15 years ago I put a 16 yr old girl in my dragster

    she went 200 at the 1/8th on her first licensing run

    she qualified #1 with a 5.71 @ 240 at her first race

    she went on to race Top Fuel, with some success, at 18

    point being there's no reason it can't be done by anyone with the right experience and attitude

    you have to break a record over 200 mph to be in the "club" ... not just go 200 ...
     
  16. I have been collecting parts for my 27 coupe for a while now. I have always wanted to make the "200 mile an hour club" or alteast run at bonnevile. You cant just run? Do you have to belong to an organization or have to be certified or liscensed to do so?

    Get a rule book. Meet the requirements for safety. Pay your entry. Put right foot on floor. Leave it there. Your running at Bonneville.
     
  18. So its no nearly as hard as people say it is?

    FWIW, the guy on the PA system at Bonneville said on Monday that more people have climbed Mt. Everest than have made it into the 200MPH club.

    Pretty exclusive it would seem.

  21. Im not trying to hijack the thread. Im just trying to figure out all the requirements and where to go and who tot alk to to get started.
     
  22. jimmydeansgirl ...

    I know for a fact that a Bonneville roadster doesn't know (or care about) the gender or age of its driver!

    As others have stated, it's not very easy to get into the 2-club ... not only do you have go at least 200mph (a great achievement in itself), but you have to break an existing record (or set a record in a new class).

    The Bonneville Speed Records for all of the Roadster classes are listed HERE ... Note that this list is currently "as of Sept. 2008" ... it will be updated next week to include records set @ SpeedWeek '09.

    The Bonneville 200 MPH Club website is HERE.

    With all that said, I say GO FOR IT!!!!
     
  23. So a 27 coupe would be in a whole different class then a roadster? Well ofcourse it depends on drivetrain and what not.
     
  24. Just for the record, Mrs. Bluto, driving the Ardun powered Furgeson streamliner, did break the then existing record, and backed it up the next day. Later in the week the same liner, running the same class with another driver, broke the Mrs. Bluto's record and backed it up.
    Both drivers earned membership into the club.

  25. The Bonneville 200 MPH Club is a record keeping/social club for drivers who have entered the club by breaking an existing speed record or club minimum. The club does not get involved with rules or safety matters. Good Luck and see you on the Salt! The Bonneville 200 MPH Club .



    I found this on bonnevile200mph.org-how to run at bonnevile. Writtin above. It states "The club does not get involved with rules or safety matters" So does that mean they dont follow the same rules as everyone else? You just run and they put you in a class?
     
  26. 56 ford custom ...

    I hope you realize that your Coupe is not a Roadster :eek: :D

    SCTA is the governing body that sets the rules for running a vehicle @ Bonneville (& El Mirage) ... your 1927 Coupe would have to run in the Vintage Coupe class (and be powered by an XF, XO, XXF, XXO, or V4 engine) ... Checkout the SCTA Car & Engine classes HERE.

    The 200 MPH Club is a completely separate entity ... and not affliated with SCTA-BNI.

    EDIT: I was just checking out your profile ... what the heck is a 1927 ford 5 window coupe? :confused: ... this could turn out to be a "teachable moment" for both of us :rolleyes:.

    If you really want to get in the two club you should start with a body that has a better chance of making it. If you read the rules you can see that coups and sedans run in a different class than roadsters. If you put a SBC in your '27 you will find your self running against Monzas and gen 3 Comaros and such. Plan to get a plan.
