The Fastest Motorcycle Landspeed Record Falls

Top 1 Oil “Ack Attack” Sets New Absolute Motorcycle Land Speed Record –
360.913 MPH

On September 26, 2008, after five days of pushing their streamliner
motorcycle to new limits on the salt flats of Bonneville, the Top 1 Ack
Attack team achieved what it came to do – topple the existing absolute FIM
motorcycle land speed record with a blistering 360.913 mph run. At 8:58 MST,
team owner Mike Akatiff, driver Rocky Robinson and crew shattered the
existing 350.884mph record set by Denis Manning and Chris Carr in 2006. The
new record was witnessed by an FIM official onsite, but is still subject to
FIM ratification.

The historic record was set during the first annual TOP 1 Oil World Land
Speed Shootout taking place this week at the Bonneville Salt Flats in
Bonneville, Utah.
