Front Cover: Alp Sungurtekin and his crew getting ready for the second record backup run after Alp qualified with 193.952mph. This photograph was taken at 0600hrs and it was COLD! They are preparing the bike for the record run — the contaminated oil was drained, all the fuel was cleared after the qualifier (first run), and the fresh oil has to be pre-heated. This is the fastest land speed record of a stock displacement ‘1,000cc’ Vincent in any class. This record is achieved naked without any streamlining and is naturally aspirated. The previous fastest speed belonged to the full streamliner 1,000cc Vincent of ‘Burns & Wright’ which was the world record holder. This is the first time a 1,000cc Vincent had gone faster than the Burns & Wright’ streamliner after all these years. Many were confused to see a 1948 engine reaching these amazing speeds — especially without any streamlining! Photo courtesy: Dave Kommel and Alp Sungurtekin
