(Work in Progress)
After Daytona Kartweek, there’s always a lot of talk about speed records for karts and I’ve never seen a single resource that talks about the different attempts over the years… So far there are three primary karts that come to mind:
Dap Boys’ Bonneville attempt in 1996 (Click for details)
Jack McClure’s rocket powered Karts
BRC250 Laydown at Daytona piloted by James Russell Jr.
Mike Clements’ 1992 World Land Speed record for 4 cycle karts. On the Salt Flats of Bonneville, Utah.
His kart ran 144.832 mph with the help of the Tecumseh Star power and the Emmick
n.b. Karts are not permitted on the Salt Flats under USFRA rules.
