OSU Buckeye Bullet 2 tops 200 MPH at Bonneville

The Ohio State University team that has been working with Ford on setting land speed records for fuel cell powered vehicles passed another milestone on Friday as the August session of salt flats racings drew to a close. The hydrogen=fueled streamliner broke through the 200 mph barrier at the three mile mark on the course. Now that they have verified that the drivetrain works properly they are returning to Columbus to continue refining all the systems. The team is heading back to Bonneville in October for the 2007 Racing World Finals when they hope to exceed 300 mph on their way to an ultimate goal of 350 mph.
