We recently got the news that Greg Mackie and Stephen Muller were able to break some 36hp records over in Austrilia!! One in a sweet Ghia and the other in one of our favorite beetles we have seen in long time.
Here is the story from the horses mouth... or Greg's :
We have just returned from Lake Gairdner (salt lake) in South Australia, afrer a VERY SUCCESSFUL record meeting.
The two cars - both owned and built by Steve Muller - bettered existing records. Date - Wednesday, 10th March,2010.
Steve clocked 127.5 MPH in his Karmann Ghia - new Australian record.
I drove Steve's '56 Oval ( Stone Stock) to 75.1 MPH - new 36HP World Record (subject to confirmation).
So congrats go out to both Steve and Greg for there fantastic runs!!
