Wild Brothers Racing at Houston Mile

Wild Bros Racing attended the inaugural Houston Mile event on Saturday.  The race was held in conjunction with the Aeros and Autos Show at the Ellington Air Force Base in Houston TX.  For their first event, and due to the restraints of the airplane and car show, the race was run on a ½ mile track.  This gave us the perfect opportunity to “get back on the saddle” with the Steetbike after the little get off Billy Shoemaker had 6 weeks ago at the TX mile.

Billy’s six broken ribs are healed and the fairings of the Streetbike are nicely painted.  The one day event went very well, even with the 8” of rain that dumped on Houston the night before.  Billy preformed in top form, and the “Streetbike” did well.  We walked away with the “Fastest Motorcycle Award” with a 209.1 on this ½ mile course.  We are happy with the win but the power and speed were way down on the Bike.  The Bike is being serviced to see why the speed was down 15-20mph.
Bill Warner and the “Racebike” are still recovering from the October accident.  Still shooting for the June 2/3rd Wilmington race.  Bill’s left hand still needs some work and strengthening.

Another Record for Bill Warner and Wild Brothers

Last weekend Bill Warner of Wild Brothers Racing set yet another track record at the Mojave Mile, in Mojave California, shattering the old record by over 23 miles per hour!

Bill ran a record 274.8 mph, then backed it up with a run of 273.8 mph!   

Unfortunately, Bill was unable to go all out, as the track has a small dip where one of the taxiways crosses the runway.  Due to the speeds Bill is laying down and the incredible acceleration, the bike would unload, resulting in a wheelie at over 280 mph!  After looking over the track and reviewing the logged data on Saturday night, it was decided that no runs would be made on Sunday.

Wild Brothers Racing now holds track records at 4 of the five paved land speed racing venues in the country:  Maxton, NC; Loring, ME, Goliad, TX, and now Mojave, CA !!!!

Next week, we will be racing at the new Texas Mile “Beeville” track and will be attempting to become the first motorcycle to go over 300 mph in the standing mile and to complete the sweep of ALL paved Land Speed track records in the USA.
