BONNEVILLE SALT FLATS, Utah – Longtime racer and dealer principal Al Lamb made history late last month at the Cook Invitational Shoot Out with a two-way mile average speed of over 262.47 mph, setting the new AMA/FIM World Record.

Lamb, owner of Top 100 Dealer Dallas Honda, celebrated his triumph on the heels of achieving the top motorcycle record in August during SCTA Speed Week at the Bonneville Salt Flats with a record of 240.2 mph in the SCTA MPS1000BF class. He continued the charge with another goal-setting run during the BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials at the Bonneville Salt Flats with the event’s top speed.

The new world record was realized on No. 1979, a turbo-charged Honda CBR1000RR designed and tuned by the Dallas Honda Race Team, which included Trevor Weilor from Honda Racing, crew chief and head mechanic Todd Wright, mechanic support Alan Frosch, and programmer and electronics guru Eric Schieb, all sponsored by American Honda Motor Corp.

Next up: Nardo, Italy. “We know the bike can go even faster and we’re up for the challenge,” Lamb said.

Lamb’s Land Speed Race Team is sponsored by Honda, along with APL, Lucas Oil, Fast Skinz, Effort Gear, Moto Centric, World Wide Bearings, U-Clear and Dunlop.

Motorcycle enthusiasts can see the record-breaking CBR1000RR bike and meet Al Lamb at the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows in Dallas, Long Beach, Cleveland, and Chicago.
