Lee Taylor's Fatal Crash

GLENBROOK, Nev. — (AP) — Lee Taylor vanished into the frigid waters of Lake Tahoe when his rocket-powered boat disintegrated while trying to set a water speed record and rescue crews have all but given up hope that he could have survived.

Searchers used floodlights and television cameras, working late into the night, but failed to find any trace of the cockpit section of the boat that was traveling well over 200 miles an hour when it caromed out of control.

The search, which lasted five hours, resumed at 9 a.m. today, but the rescue workers held out little hope that Taylor could have survived.

Sheriff's Sgt. Doug Struthers said: He is presumed dead. He has not been officially declared dead.

Before darkness fell, crews recovered an unopened drag parachute, Taylor's helmet and several sections of the boat, but found no sign of the 45-year-old Bellflower, Calif., pilot.

He never had a chance to say 'boo,' said a crew member, Luke Fratello.

Denver Dickerson, project director for the record attempt, said it appeared the boat hit a black line of shifting currents that caught a sponson at the rear of the boat. The boat just blew apart, Dickerson said.

He said a black line creates a surface disturbance similar to going over a bump, and the line was where Taylor started to shut off his engine.

The accident occurred after Taylor had made one of two required runs through the 1-kilometer speed trap in an attempt to break the record of 317.6 miles an hour. Reports on his speed ranged from 270 to 350 m.p.h. before he cut off his engines.

A crowd estimated at nearly 1,000, including Taylor's mother, wife and daughter, greeted the pilot with cheers as he raced through the speed trap. The shouts turned to screams when the boat flew apart and sank in 200 feet of water about a half mile offshore.

Taylor tested the boat this summer on Walker Lake southeast of Reno and reached unofficial speeds of 333 m p.h.

It's euphoric traveling at that speed, he had said. It's sort of like riding the tip of an arrow just shot from a bow.

Taylor had said he hoped to hit 350 m.p.h. in yesterday's attempt to take the record from Australia's Ken Warby.

Warby broke Taylor's previous record in June, 1978, after Taylor held the mark 11 years. Both records were set in jet boats. This was the first attempt in a rocket-powered craft.

Taylor survived a jet-boat crash in 1964 on Lake Havasu in Arizona.

The 40-foot U.S. Discovery II was powered by a 16,000-horsepower rocket designed for aircraft and missiles and fueled by 1,000 pounds of hydrogen peroxide. The boat was valued at $2.5 million.

254.958kph Speed Ski World Record 2016, Fastest non-motorised humans on the planet.

Ivan Origone and Valentina Greggio of Italy beat the World Record with speeds of 254.958kph (158.424 mph) and 247.038kph (153,502mph).

Two world records were broken today in VARS la Forêt Blanche (France) at the Speedmasters in Speed Ski, a non-FIS event.

Ivan Origone (ITA) broke his brother’s record by 2,5km/h and set a new benchmark at 254,958km/h. His brother, Simone Origone, had held 3 world records since 2006.

The new women’s record holder is also from Italy. Valentina Greggio, who with two World Cup events to go is already the overall FIS Speed Ski World Cup winner, set a new speed record with 247,038km/h and beat the 10 year old record set by Sanna Tidstrand from Sweden.

Hiro Koiso Land Speed Record:Bonneville Stories

Hiro Koiso sets a new AMA and FIM records at the 2013 BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Hiro very possibly the story that most exemplifies what Bonneviile is all about. After he crashed his bike in 2010, Hiro loaned Roger Golhammer's team his entire engine that Hiro had worked on for a year and they watched Jimmy Paulgaard run it for a land speed record. That kind of unselfishness and camaraderie is what makes the BUB event so special. Scooter Grubb ScooterShoots.com

Donald Campbell Killed in Water Speed Record Attempt

Donald Campbell Killed in Water Speed Record Attempt. Campbell was a British speed record breaker who is the only person to have set both world water and land speed records in the same year (1964). On 4th January 1967, Campbell was killed whilst attempting to set another water speed record in his 'Bluebird K7'. He had already set seven water speed records between 1955 and 1964 with speed increases from 216mph to 276.33mph. The accident happened on Coniston Water, Lancashire, England. The Bluebird surpassed 320mph but as she did so she gradually lifted from the water before somersaulting out of control. Campbell was killed instantly.

Land Speed Record Attempt Summer 2015

The Drayson Racing FIA World Land Speed Record

Drayson Racing is proud to announce that it has set a new World Electric Land Speed Record of 204.185mph.

Former science minister, businessman and racing driver Lord Drayson was behind the wheel of the Drayson B12 69/EV electric Le-Mans PrototypeIn near perfect conditions, the Oxford-based sustainable motorsport company smashed the previous 175mph record, which had stood for nearly forty years, by 29.2mph.

As the new world record holder, Lord Drayson commented:
I'm delighted we've beaten the record tonight and can show the world EVs can be fast and reliable. Drayson Racing is a laboratory for EV technology, testing it to the most extreme level, as we've seen today.

It is not the outright speed of 204.185mph that is most impressive about this record, but the engineering challenge of accelerating a 1000kg electric vehicle on a short runway over a measured mile. However I've got a great team and world-class partners, such as QualcommHalo, Michelin, Multimatic and Cosworth.

This is a true celebration of Britain's leading position within the burgeoning electric vehicle industry and I'm delighted to be at the forefront of this electric revolution. We hope to set more records tomorrow.

Drayson Racing is a research and development business, pioneering the development of sustainable technologies in the challenging environment of motorsport. With the electric land speed record it intends to showcase what is possible with an electric drivetrain and underscore Britain's leadership position in the EV industry.

Donald Campbell Sets Land Speed Record at 403mph (1964)

Donald Campbell Sets Land Speed Record at 403mph (1964). Campbell was a British speed record breaker who is the only person to have set both world water and land speed records in the same year (1964). On 17 July 1964, Campbell set a new world land speed record of 403.10mph for a four-wheeled car (Class A) at Lake Eyre, Australia. He was however disappointed with the record as his Norris Brothers designed Bluebird-Proteus CN7 had been constructed to reach speeds of 500mph. Campbell went on that year to set another water speed record at 276.33mph.

Campbell was killed whilst attempting to set his 8th water speed record in 1967.
