Steam Rocket Bike Breaks the Land Speed Record. On 21st May 2023, Graham Sykes clocked a top speed of 163.8mph as he completed the 1/8th-mile drag run in just 3.878 seconds and then on 7th July 2023 at Santa Pod Raceway Graham ran a time of 6.7189 seconds over the standing 1/4 mile track with a 1.0605 60ft. The 1/8 mile time and speed were 4.038 at a staggering 175.06mph which takes the record for a steam-powered vehicle to over 175mph!
At CPE we are super proud of Graham and his team’s achievements, it has been fantastic to support the project and see it succeed.
