Wheelie & Speed Records
This weekend sees the Wheelie & Speed Rcords meeting at Elvington airfield near York, with event organiser Dodge hoping to break the monowheeling record of 172.9mph on the supercharged Hayabusa that you'll have seen being built in the magazine. But he has plenty of competition, including Ghostrider, the Swedish loony known for the police-evading videos who makes a welcome return to the event after a one year rest.
The top speed record at Elvington is over 250mph and, if conditions are favourable, this could be beaten!
There's also the second round of the Straightliners stunt championship, details of which can be found on
Entry is just £10 for spectators, and this year Sky Sports One will be on site to record the event for future broadcasting!
