  1. 1. ANGELIC BULLDOG PROJECT.
  2. 2. STATE OF PLAY • AS WE ARE HERE TODAY, THE RECORD IS HELD BY TOP 1 OIL ACK ATTACK! ROCKY REACHED 376.363MPH FOR THE MILE IN SEPTEMBER, 2010. THE CHASE IS ON FOR 400MPH!
  3. 3. THE OUTRIGHT MOTORCYCLE RECORD EXPLAINED. • In order to break the record you must beat the speed over a measured mile, in both directions, within a two-hour period. The record is the average of the two speeds, and is timed to 1/1000mph.
  4. 4. THE CURRENT CONTENDERS. • The following slides show the three streamliners which have exceeded the record speed since 2006, whether officially or not.
  5. 5. DENIS MANNING AND CHRIS CARR. • Denis broke the record for the first time in 1970, and has since established his place in history by building a series of the fastest motorcycles in the world, culminating in BUB 7. This streamliner has twice broken the record, in the capable hands of Chris Carr, reaching a peak speed of over 372mph. BUB 7 features a 3,000cc V4 engine with a small turbocharger.
  6. 6. BUB7
  7. 7. SAM WHEELER. • Sam is one of the unsung heroes at Bonneville. He has exceeded the record at least four times, but has never been able to back it up officially. His peak speed is over 355mph. Sam uses a single, turbocharged engine, with a small chassis.
  8. 8. EZ HOOK
  9. 9. MIKE AKATIFF AND ROCKY ROBINSON. • Mike built Ack Attack, raced first at Bonneville in 2004, and within three years broke the Harley record, which had stood for 16 years, with his rider, Rocky Robinson. The Top 1 Oil Ack Attack streamliner runs two Suzuki engines with a huge turbocharger. Ack has broken the record three times, and as well as being the current holder, set a fastest mile of 286+mph, with an exit speed of 394mph!
  10. 10. TOP 1 OIL ACK ATTACK
  11. 11. THE ANGELIC BULLDOG PROJECT.
  12. 12. The Angelic Bulldog Streamliner. Specifications. • 23 feet long • 23 inches wide! • 3 feet tall • 900kgs • 700+bhp • 0-408mph in 95 seconds
  13. 13. Safety considerations. • The streamliner will have the following: • Roll cage made of T45 tubing, 3.2mm thick • Bodywork made of carbon/kevlar mix • Two six-pot callipers and 10mm thick discs, watercooled • 2 chutes for high speed • Watercooled chains running in a neoprene tunnel, either side of the rear wheel
  14. 14. My safety! • A nine-point harness • A 6-layer firesuit • A Nomex-lined helmet • Fireproof gloves and boots • A fire system in both the engine and cockpit compartments • A tilt mechanism to deploy both chutes if the streamliner goes over 40 degrees from vertical
  15. 15. MY EXPERIENCES
  16. 16. VERNEUK PAN, SOUTH AFRICA. • In May 2003, my brother and I flew over to Cape Town, and drove the 500 miles up to the Northern Cape to test a streamliner training bike. I tested on three lake beds, including the Hakskeen Pan, where Bloodhound SSC are going in 2013, but the best for me was the Vernuek Pan, where Malcolm Campbell set a five-mile record of 218mph in 1929, which still stands. As you will see in one of the slides, the lakebed is 37 miles across, and has a height difference of six inches! It is remote, being 45 miles from the nearest tarmac.
  17. 17. THE ACABION. • Dr Peter Maskus made his vision of future transport, in which a vehicle can carry two people and some luggage in speed and comfort. The result is an astonishing machine, which is way ahead of it’s time for the road. I tested this vehicle near Berlin, in Germany.
  18. 18. THE ACABION
  19. 19. ANGELIC BULLDOG DEVELOPMENTS. • The following slides show some details of the Angelic Bulldog streamliner. • The name “Angelic Bulldog” comes from my name being Gabriel, and the Bulldog is British and does not let go!
  20. 20. Rollcage
  21. 21. Gearing is as follows: • 1st - 3.333:1 - 117.84mph • 2nd - 2.176:1 - 180.49mph • 3rd - 1.556:1 - 252.41mph • 4th - 1.238:1 - 317.25mph • 5th - 1.052:1 - 373.34mph • 6th - 0.958:1 - 409.97mph • It can be geared higher if needed. • AT 400MPH I WILL BE COVERING 2 FOOTBALL PITCHES EVERY SECOND!
  22. 22. AUSTWICK ENTERPRISES • Everybody can help this project in some way, and Austwick Enterprises are providing me with the resources to spend more time organising everything that needs to be done.
