Land Speed Record Turbinator's Fastest Run 470 mph
August 2001, during the Speed Week trials on the Bonneville Salt Flats, Don Vesco set the fastest one way time for a wheel driven car ever at an amazing 470 mph. Don's "Turbinator" was powered by a stock 3750 hp T55 turboshaft engine. Don was forced to shut down at 470 due to the short, 5 mile course, even though he was not throttled up all the way. He returned in Oct. to officially establish the F.I.A. absolute wheel driven record at 458.440.
