Adam Girard is fastest man on two wheels....

14th September 2013

In an effort to match the speed of Adam Girard I've already uploaded today's pictures from the Guernsey Kart & Motor Club Sprint meeting.

Today Adam re-wrote the record book by lowering Kent Gavey's Motor Cycle record for the Vazon Sprint. This was a record that has stood since Sept 2004.

Credit has to be given to Kent for setting his time so long ago as many have tried to match it since. It was Adam who put together a perfect run on his Graham Brown Ltd Fireblade to set the new mark at 9.66 sec.

With the Guernsey Sprint season now over we will have to wait to see how long the new record will last.

Adam's runs were perfect examples of how 'fast usually looks unspectacular'. What I mean by this is that Adam's launch from the line is smooth, carefully measured with little wheel lift. He perfectly judged the traction and wheel spin.

From a spectators view there were many more dramatic runs... but that is not how you break records!

Thanks to all the racers for entertaining us today. The prize for the biggest wheelies must go to Anthony Poynder... next year his target has to be the full quarter mile :-)
