Greenline Industries Die Moto Project Built by The Crucible Smashes Long Standing Diesel Motorcycle Land Speed Record
Establishes World Biodiesel Landspeed Record
EMT arranged for the speonsorship of the biodiesel powered Greenline Industries, Die Moto project motorcycle built by The Crucible to set land speed record in three categories at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
Clocked at an average of 130.55 MPH over the two required flying mile runs, the biodiesel powered bike easily beat out the previous record of 105MPH in the 1500 to 3,000cc category. The remarkable aspect of the record is that it marked the first time in the Federation Internationale de la Moto (FIM)’s history that a non-petroleum powered bike has gone that fast over the measured miles of the Bonneville Salt Flats. The record also goes into the American Motorcycle Association’s (AMA) official record books, as co-sponsor of the event with BUB Enterprises.
Although only the diesel record is official, the three categories that the BMW-derived motorcycle now dominates includes diesel, biodiesel and biofuels records. The record run was set by Mr. Michael Sturtz, The Crucibles Founder and Executive Director and long time motorcycle enthusiast.
Speaking on behalf of Greenline Industries, Mr. John Kinney, CEO said: “Diesel and biodiesel power have become true motor sports staples with two wins in the 24 hours of Le Mans by diesel powered Audis, an around the world record attempt and now a land speed record. Clearly the increased efficiency of the diesel engine and the cleanliness of biodiesel are moving the fuel onto the world high performance stage. We are proud to have been a part of this remarkable effort and look forward to higher speeds next year.”
