At the start of Speed Week we pulled the pin on our little A series hand grenade.

It has performed incredibly well all week, propelling our wee car to a stunning 166mph and earning us two more world speed records. No one expects a highly tuned race motor to last forever and we had hoped it would last a week. We won’t know exactly what failed until it’s apart but we suspect it was the BMC oil pump. On our record run this morning the oil pressure dropped suddenly during the run and the show was over. We’re leaving Bonneville incredibly proud of what we have achieved as a team and grateful for all the friendships old and new strengthened by this experience. Next time someone tells you it can’t be done, find someone else to play with and make it happen.
