Congratulations to Fritz Egli, he has an AMA US national record pending for his Suzuki Hayabusa sidecar outfit, recording a two way average of 206.157 MPH (208 one way) in the 1350-SC-BF class at this year's BUB Speed Trials. This thread on landracing.com says that his record is also pending with the FIM. If ratified by the FIM, I believe it would be the first FIM sidecar record over 200 MPH.

Sincere congratulations Fritz, from the sidecar section - even if it wasn`t on a Vin. Saw the photos - very impressive! Wish we had been there. Are you going back next year as we hope to go again.
Cheers, DJ

From the thread on landracing.com:

"Fritz indicated he will be back to the salt in the future, with a longer wheel base outfit, new tire, and more power"
