Doug Herbert has decided to delay his land speed record attempt until 2014
Doug Herbert will not compete in his streamliner at Speed Week this year. He has decided to delay the run for several reasons; including not having adequate time for testing.
"This isn't something you want to rush along," said Doug Herbert, who will pilot the streamliner. "When we started this project, I don't think any of us involved realized how long it would take to get everything right and that's what we're trying to do. We don't want to just head out there without knowing how the car will perform. We want to take our time and get it right, so when we do make it to Bonneville we'll run well."
The car, which is near completion, needs work done on the body and engines. The LSR Project team hopes to finish work over the winter and start testing the streamliner in early spring.
