Castrol Rocket is preparing for a top record speed for motorcycles





All two-wheeled vehicles, which over the past few decades, claimed the Tattered speed world record for motorcycles share the common part – they do not like motorcycles. And the newest contender for the Tattered this record, it seems, once again will be no exception. Castrol Rocket – it’s almost 1,000-strong jet, but without wings. At the moment it is tested on the dry salt lake Bonneville (Utah, USA), where it is prepared to Tattered another world speed record for motorcycles.

Hot Rod Conspiracy / Carpenter Racing Castrol Rocket (but better, let’s just call him Castrol Rocket) is powered by two turbo engines Triumph Rocket III, which provide a vehicle to power more than 1,000 horsepower (745 kW) at 9000 rpm and 678 Nm of torque . Help beat the maximum speed record Castrol Rocket help it streamline korbono-Kevlar monocoque. The length of the vehicle is 7.6 meters.




Castrol Rocket was the result of the work of engineer Matt Markstallera, a top-level faders Bob Carpenter and Daytona 200 race winner Jason DiSalvio. It DiSalvio will manage Castrol Rocket and try to beat the world speed record for motorcycles, which currently stands at 605.697 km / h and a set of Rocky Robinson on a motorcycle Ack Attack.

Here we note that Chris Carr was the first person who was able to beat the speed record on a motorcycle, breaking the mark speed of 350 miles per hour (563 km / h). It happened in 2006. Then, in 2008, this record was broken by Robinson, who dispersed the motorcycle vehicle up to 360 miles per hour (579 km / h). A year later, Carr managed to regain the title of the fastest riders on motorcycles, breaking the mark of velocity of 367 miles per hour 590.5 km / h


Times change: Glenn Curtis set an unofficial speed record for motorcycles in 1903, breaking up the two-wheeled mechanical friend to 102.9 km / h





The purpose of a team is the Castrol Rocket accelerate the vehicle up to 643.6 km / h and possibly speed it up even more. If everything works out, then motorcycles based on engine Triumph again have the title of the fastest in the world, which they had held for nearly a quarter century to the 1970s.
