Terry Wilmeth sets new World ATV land speed record at 124.18
Congratulations to Terry Wilmeth for setting a new ATV speed
record of 124.18 mph. On June 18, 2005. The record run was witnessed
by officials of the Guinness World Record Book. The record was
set on an ATV Raptor with a hybrid rocket assist, after the
history-making run, Terry made this statement to the press.
I won’t kid anybody in admitting that we struggled with
some technical issues that had us baffled. After all, who would
be nuts enough to install a rocket motor on an ATV Swing arm.
To that particular end, I owe much of our success to Ky Michaelson
the original Rocketman. He learned of our plight and unselfishly
provided the technical insight we needed to take our motor to
the next level. I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for
his help and creative support.
Again I would like to congrdulate Terry for his accomplishment.
Like I have always said if you want to go fast put a rocket
