Mark Dotson : ECTA Land Speed Report
The Street Bike Shootout at the ECTA Ohio Mile event held in Wilmington OH was the last event to be held at this spectacular racetrack. This event was held September 30 – October 2nd.
Wind. That four letter word that makes it tough on any Land Speed Racer. We battled a headwind each day and some rain on the first and last days. In between I managed to rack up another 6 records with a top speed of 183 with the bike in a naked configuration (no fairings).
There are still a couple of items to sort out in the shifting department and I had a NOS pressure safety switch fail and would not allow the bike to spray. Fortunately these are all minor issues to sort out over the long off season and I will be back at it again next year. Mark The Mechanic Racing is not one to let minor adversities affect the outcome of a race.
2016 was our best year ever in LSR and a total of 42 records were added to a grand total of 62! Two additional 200MPH Club Inductions for a total of 3 memberships into this very exclusive Lifetime Club and 2 Worlds Fastest Speeds.
Setting and breaking records could not be done without your continued support and I appreciate everything that you do to make Mark The Mechanic Racing a success!
