Bello -Texas 2010 One Mile Event-

Texas 1 Mile 2010

Since this section of the forum is for all the HP Junkies, we will update this thread daily in aims to share with all of you the sequence of events before, going to and the runs from the 2010 Texas One Mile Record breaking attempt.

The goal is to run 245 MPH from 0 to 1 mile.

The car is in great condition and it's possible that it can run more than that, just to give you an idea it took over 50 man hours to get the car ready for this upcoming event.

Wednesday 24

I left the shop at 11.45 PM and the team was about 1 hour away to start the journey to Texas 4 drivers will take turns driving non stop.

Left to right, My self, Eddie Bello and Marco from Billet Design





Race Ready





Custom Front End Covered carbon fiber hood and custom turn signals




One of the many sponsors and we Thank you !!




Ready to go

Great job guys!!! I would say good luck to Eddie, but he is so prepared for this that luck will only play a minor role. Glad that all the safety gear was ready in time so that he will be safe no matter what.

Damn those Zorks are huge!

Damn, don't tell me Eddie is gonna have to drive his car to TX again! Well, certainly should be able to make it in record time if he does! Hope those guys can band-aid it up and keep moving.

Goliad is only about 100 miles from here. I might make the trip down. Still waiting to see if I can get a day pass. Looks like the weather will be perfect. Cool and Sunny!

Juan,

Thanks for keeping us updated on the group's action, and the car. Good to know you three are really involved, as it motivates me. Trying to figure out how to find more than a couple hours a day to work on various projects, with out loosing site of the most important ones requiring much more.

Keep us posted.

Regards,

Eddie Bello has officially terrified his own team, signals of SOS continue to come in to the headquarters, passing Mississippi.
