TEXAS MILE // OFFICIAL SITE // 3 DAYS, 1 MILE: NO SPEED LIMIT

Bello has now decisively broken in both Texas (226mph) and Miami (236.7mph) the speed record that Mark Donohue set with the 1500hp intercooled 917/30 of 221mph

March 26-28th, he is aiming to beat his only competition, himself and his own records, to go faster than anyone ever thought possible in an 'old skool' street driven 964 turbo.

Any 930 guys in Tx, here is your chance to come out and watch history
The 917/30 was a closed circuit record. 917's and 956's were pushing 250mph at Le Mans. This is the fastest 911 breaking Denny Kahler's 230mph 911 street car record at Bonneville 20 years ago. His car was a narrow bodied 911 with a chopped top, 3.0 liter, MFI, twin turbo. As a side not he also went 220mph with a little 2.0 liter twin turbo.
