11 months after setting a new FIA world record for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (303 mph), the Buckeye Bullet team has once again set a FIA World Land Speed Record!
At 3pm MDT Roger Schroer of TRC, Inc., set a new record on the Bonneville Salt Flats for battery powered electric vehicles at 292 mph.
The record was set over a 60-minute period and consists of the average of two runs over a timed mile in the middle of a 12-mile course.

The team will attempt to better this record over the next 24 hours
