And nobody still knows about this 283 mph run?? No mention of it anywhere except on here, even asked a few guys down here and said they had no clue and we live down here lol. You'd figure something like this would be on every board. So if they did, did they run the track by themselves lol??

Just checked and go figure, looks like it was just updated and official *from that thread

Performance Power Racing drives through fastest standing mile record at Kennedy Space Center - - - Latest news - Guinness World Records
Performance Power Racing reset the record for the fastest standing mile (car) this week at 283.232 mph.

Johnny Bohmer, owner of Performance Power Racing (USA), broke the record at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA, using a 2006 Ford GT to set the record.

The standing mile is an event in which a vehicle, from a dead stop, accelerates completely through the one mile mark.

The West Palm Beach based Research and Development Company worked directly with Pratt and Whitney on a new high specific strength, high temperature tolerant, Aluminum Alloy named Pandalloy™.

Parts were specifically designed and manufactured out of Pandalloy for the Ford GT used in the attempt.

"Our entire team has worked very hard to get here and we are proud to be able to put an American car in the record books as the fastest street car in the world." Mr. Bohmer said about the achievement. "By NASA allowing us access to a one of a kind facility, we are given the opportunity to push the limits of these technologies and explore their benefits. An immense amount of research and development went in to this 3 year project and we are just scratching the surface of where these systems can be utilized outside of the racing arena."

The run was measured by Tag Heuer timing equipment and verified by officials from the International Mile Racing Association, who recognized the run as a new IMRA world record.

Johnny's crew included Matt Lundy (lead design tech), Jeff McEachran, Frank Richert, George Brown and Matt Lilly.

Sponsors of the car included Big Stuff, Eye Candy Performance Car Care, Magna Fuel, Moran Racing Engines, Snow Performance, NLR Power and Control, Pandalloy Extreme Performance Aluminum, Performance Power Materials, Precision Turbo & Engine, and Serious Autosport.
