Racelogic Certifies SSC Tuatara World Record Speed Record

Racelogic USA was contracted by SSC North America to provide technical assistance with measuring and validating high-speed test runs of the SSC Tuatara during testing and record attempts conducted with Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds at Space Florida’s LLF, Kennedy Space Center, Merritt, FL on January 17th, 2021. 

Speed and time data was collected with a Racelogic VBOX 3i 100Hz GNSS system, accurate to ±0.06 MPH, and traceable to ISO standards for speed measurement. The data logger was installed and data was verified by Jim Lau, Technical Director – North America of Racelogic USA.

Onboard video speed overlay was also collected during these runs using a VBOX Video HD2 for further correlation, and is available publicly.

Here are the results of those runs:

Run 1, Northbound:

• Max Speed: 279.7 MPH (450.1 km/h) reached at 2:38:09 PM EST

Run 2, Southbound:

• Max Speed: 286.1 MPH (460.4 km/h) reached at 3:28:51 PM EST

Two-way average:

• 282.9 MPH (455.3 km/h)

Racelogic’s VBOX line of speed measurement devices are recognized as an industry standard, and are used by automotive manufacturers and suppliers around the world.

“We are truly fortunate to have trusted partners in Forgeline and Dymag. When reaching speeds in excess of 330 miles per hour, the wheels on the Tuatara are paramount to the safety of the driver and success of our company. As with all components of the Tuatara we diligently researched wheel manufacturers from around the globe and came to the clear conclusion that Forgeline and Dymag were the only choice for us. We would not trust any other supplier with such an important responsibility that is so integral to the success of SSC.”
