George Poteet and Speed Demon go 480 MPH at Bonneville Speed Week
George Poteet and Speed Demon go 480 MPH at Bonneville Speed Week 2020. “We had a fire at over 400 MPH and our three Stat-X fire suppression system put it out!”
It’s the 72nd annual speed Week at the famous Bonneville Salt Flats and torq talk was there to capture the action including a record-breaking run by George Poteet and his Speed Demon Piston Powered car. Speed Demon set a new world record of 470MPH and a top speed of 480MPH earning the title once again of World’s Fastest Piston Powered Car.
With doubts, if the 2020 race would take place due to the worldwide pandemic over 200 teams made the trip from all over the world to keep this tradition alive, set records and show camaraderie for each other.
We made our record run, as you will see in the video.
