You and your friends (or me and mine) challenge each other to simple things, or at least if we compare it to the fight between Jack Frost and Guy Martin. We don’t know how close they are, but they are friends because Frost Guy helped set up the Hayabusa, which he used to break the standing start mile speed record with his HoleShot Racing team.
But now, as a good guy, he had set out to steal that record from Martin with his own modified Hayabusa. A bike that, as you can see, has many changes from the original bike.
But without going into detail about the merits of the machine, because we really don’t know them and Jack Frost keeps the secrets like gold on a cloth, the truth is that everything seems to be studied down to the millimeter, to achieve one goal is already a reality: breaking the 270 mph barrier.
To give you an idea of the speed, in kilometers per hour it’s exactly 434.523, all from a standing start and a mile ahead. So it’s a difficult fight because the start is also part of the result that can be achieved a mile later.
On that occasion, Jack intended to beat Guy and his record, but kept coming up with an odd situation: no matter what changes he made, he wouldn’t make the 270 miles. So he tested some more, tried, fought himself… and in the end, with only fuel left for one last try, he succeeded!
Jack Frost at 270.7 miles per hour
In the end he didn’t manage to hit 270 but that 0.7 miles upped the ante, which in the metric system means he hit 435.65 kilometers per hour. Quite a challenge and a record that certainly doesn’t end there.
We don’t know if Guy Martin will try to get it back, but we do know that Jack Frost thinks it could reach 275 miles (442.5 kilometers per hour), so it doesn’t look like the attempt will last long.
