Triumph-Powered Castrol Rocket Attempts Bonneville Land-Speed Record

The super-sleek 2013 Castol Rocket is headed home from the Bonneville Salt Flats after making test runs for the world's top land-speed record.

Powered by twin turbo-charged Triumph Rocket 3 engines, specially built by designer Carpenter Racing, burning methanol and operated by veteran motorcycle racer Jason DiSalvo, the Castrol Rocket went through several days of practice runs but was deterred from setting any records by wet and windy weather....

Maybe next time ?  Nice to see Triumph back in the game.
