A couple weeks ago I noted that Kevin Clemens was intending to set the land speed record in the under-150-kilogram class. Fast forward to this week, the BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials are underway, and he has set a record breaking the record he set last year.
According to a news report, on Sunday his controller went POP and probably let out the magic smoke. Fortunately he had a spare controller, but it only supported a lower voltage and he had to rewire the battery pack for the lower voltage. This will of course limit the speed he can hit.
Yesterday he achieved a 78.4 miles/hr speed that is yet to be certified by the FIM.
