The team from Ford that is trying to push the fuel cell-powered Fusion-bodied racer over 200 mph is now out in Utah preparing to make their record attempt. On Sunday August 12, they made their qualifying pass at 161mph across the Bonneville Salt Flats which will allow them to make their attempt at 200 which they hope to try on Monday. The team from Ohio State University is also hoping to make their first pass with their similarly-powered stream-liner, the Buckeye Bullet 2, on Monday. If all goes well for the OSU team, they expect to crack 350mph on the salt. We'll keep you up to date on events from Bonneville as they happen.
