This extraordinary video of an August land speed record attempt by George Poteet and Ron Main’s Speed Demon race car shows the vehicle reaching 462 MPH on the Bonneville Salt Flats. The video includes onboard camera footage shot using Replay XD1080 cameras.
The speed exceeds the current record for piston engined, wheel driven racers, but the team was unable to replicate the feat on the return run, a requirement for land speed records.
