Honda F1 sets land speed records (reaching 400 km/hr)

On the third day of running at the Bonneville International Speedway in Utah, USA, Honda Racing F1’s Bonneville 400 team achieved its target of a 400kph average across the measured mile as 400.459kph was recorded.

400 kilometers per hour (km/hr) × 0.621 = 248.4 miles per hour (mph)!

Don't ask me how driving on salt compares to driving on pavement.

P.S. In other F1 news, it's now official: there won't be an F1 race in Las Vegas any time soon :( Check out Formula1's official website for the latest F1 news and analysis.
