Part of any
competitive endeavor is “The Record”.
Longest, shortest, fastest, slowest, records come in all types and sizes.
In racing, records
are kept for events and for accomplishments. There are record lap speeds at Reno, and cross country speed
records. Our own Bruce Hammer was holder of one such record, Transcontinental Eastbound, Class C-1.b.,
until very recently.
This page will document Sport Air Racing League records for absolute speeds in class.
Records are held
by SARL members only, using speeds captured at SARL-sanctioned races. Documents verifying speeds (race
results) will be reviewed by the Chairman after each sanctioned race, and when SARL points are awarded, any records set or
broken will be updated and announced.
Also on this page will be statistics generated
based on race performance.
Bob Axsom is to thank for his very meticulous management
of these data.
