Thumbs up "Pride of Italy" & "John Britten Tribute" to race for world records @ Bonneville

Two incredible streamliners are headed from Italy to Bonneville to try to set records in land speed racing!
The larger 2500cc (Formula 1 derived V-8 technology) is going for the partial streamlined motorcycle land speed record at over 400kph. The "John Britten" tribute is so named because the owner, Robert Crepaldi, was a personal friend of John Britten and his race team partner in racing the Britten V-1000 in the 90's!

And the Pride of Italy at 2000cc...

The back story is as fascinating as the bikes themselves:

When I first looked at it I didn't see the riders.
At 250 mph, why wear the suit? If you have the balls to ride that I say go sans suit and just get body painted.
