The 20-foot-long, twin-engined, Top 1 Oil Ack Attack streamliner has been built by designer Mike Akatiff and piloted by racer Rocky Robinson. Power comes form a pair of turbocharged and intercooled Suzuki Hayabusa motors.
"Land-speed racing is the stuff of which legends are made, so it's just amazing to have the machine that just set the outright world's record on display at the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Concours d'Elegance," said Tom White, who is coordinating the gathering of world-class motorcycles. "To think that people will be able to stand just a few feet from a machine that went, at one point in the run, more than half the speed of sound -- that's just incredible! A chance like this doesn't come along very often."
"We're happy to be a part of the weekend and the Concours," said Akatiff, who has twice held the motorcycle land-speed record before regaining it a third time in September. "We get a real kick out of seeing all the Hall of Famers and the other motorcycles, and we hope people enjoy seeing our motorcycle, as well."
The Concours takes place on day two of the AMA Legends & Champions Weekend at the Red Rock, which features the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Friday evening, November 19, and the AMA Racing Championship Banquet, presented by World of Powersports on Saturday, November 20. Akatiff and Robinson will be honored for their accomplishment at the racing awards gala.
