    Default World Record Wheelie competition, this weekend, Elvington Airfield



    SOME OF the world's best wheelie merchants are set to break world records this coming weekend (21st - 22nd August) at the Guinness World Wheelie event, Elvington Airfield.

    It's anticipated rround 50 people will participate in the event at the Yorkshire airfield, where competitors attempt to hold a high-speed wheelie for a full 1km.

    One of the event favourites, Dave the Dodge Rogers, will go for the prestigious record on his hand-built 300 horsepower Suzuki Hayabusa 1300.

    My personal best at the moment is 165mph but Ive had an unofficial 182mph, said the 44-year-old, granddad of two.

    The current record stands at 172mph.

    300 bhp Hayabusa?

    182 mph or 304 kmph Wheelies??

    Many of us haven't touched 305 kmph on 2 wheels, leave alone 1 wheel. This world record stuff is crazy man...

    I sincerely wish that after the event, all of them leave the airfield, on their 2 feet...
