    Default My AU record of 1957

    My AU record of 1957, electronically timed...1957 was the last year of hand held stop watches for time trials...
    It was a good record, as the old record of 46 seems too fast, everyone thought!!!
    Thanks Ron Hill thanked for this post

    My record was 48.352 MPH, I think Otto J. Crocker Timing. Craig DeWald in "FLYING CHIPS". set the mile mark at Worchester, Massachusetts at 49 MPH SOMETHING. When we arrived at Worchester, rumors were "FLYING" how stop watches weren't being honest.

    I was passing Craig DeWald going into the first turn when he "Spilled". I always thought my 48 MPH was faster than Craig's 49 MPH....

    In those days, we ran the same set up in competition as we did the time trials....
