[email protected] : 2 Speed Records in USA

An old 1946 Peugeot 202 establishes 2 speed record on Bonneville Lake during the speed week.

About the project

We are going to set 2 World Speed Records on Bonneville Salt Lake (USA) in August 2018, with a nice little Peugeot 202 from 1946. We need your help to finish the race car, buy the mandatory safety equipment for the car and pilot.
Review the above video presentating our crowfunding ==>

To carry out this adventure, we created an Association called NACL (registered under the number R.N.A. W913008227). NaCl is the chemical symbol of sodium chloride, more commonly known as ... salt. And salt, we will see in quantity on the Salt Lake of Bonneville ...

As for the project, read on and you will soon discover the secret behind this name 202 @ 232 ...

Bonneville Salt Lake is located on the Utah-Nevada border in the USA. This is where a land craft crossed the Wall of Sound for the first time in history. Since 1949, the Southern California Timing Association (SCTA) has organized an event called Speed Week. It brings together nearly 600 competitors from all over the world for a big week of speed. Cars, motorcycles and trucks are categorized according to their characteristics and performance. The speeds reached range from 50 to over 700 km / h!

All three, Erwan, Serge and Frank, we put ourselves in mind to participate in the Speed Week in August 2018 with a completely unexpected machine in the middle of all the monsters of power that we meet up there: a 1946 Peugeot 202 !

We discovered our 202 in a shed, and we turn it into a record car !!

This nice little popular car will of course be transformed into a race car to take up the challenge. We build it in the spirit of the 60s, with period spare parts. But his design will allow it to establish the 2 records that we have in focus in categories H / CBFALT and H / CBGALT.

The grille of our 202 will be clogged. Illustration of the final project (Philippe Berne - Red Hot Tiki)

The 1965 Alfa Romeo engine will be equipped with a compressor. This very special engine is under construction at L'école de la Performance, and will allow the 202 to triple its original performance. Our target speed is above 232 km / h.

Luke and Romeo build the engine during their training at L'école de la Performance (Nogaro)

What are the funds for?

As you know, the motto of the project is "With A Little Help From My Friends". We regularly seek help from the community that follows us. From our side we share our knowledge of Bonneville, its rules, and comment extensively on the project 202 @ 232 on our facebook page and our site, so that it inspires future participants.

The popular little car of 1946 has become a record car, it will roll 3 times faster than originally !!

The project is very ambitious, and it has reached a turning point. The construction of the record car is now well advanced, and its engine designed by the School of PERFORMANCE is ready to shoot. We still have to finalize the car, and acquire the mandatory safety equipment for the car and its driver. We need your support to take this new step.

The estimated budget provides for 5 major items of expenditure, the first two will be covered by this crowdfunding campaign:

We have already bought the Peugeot 202 from 1946, largely started its transformation into a run car according to the rules of the SCTA. The engine has been assembled entirely by our partner School of Performance. We have to finish this prototype: homologated seat, steering wheel, removable hub, steering, ball joints, high-speed tires, gearbox control, braking system, etc ...

The safety equipment installed in the car and worn by the driver are imposed by the organizers of the event: fire extinguishers (750 €), harness (250 €), shock absorbing foam (50 €), circuit breaker (50 € ), HANS system (450 €), "restraints arm" (50 €), overalls (255 €), fireproof underwear (123 €), helmet (425 €), boots (114 €), gloves (35 €) and fireproof hoods (40 €) ...

It needed a "pie chart" schematizing the various budget items, so here is a Camembert as we call this kind of chart in France ...

We will have to finance the 3 following positions, for which we are always in active search of our sponsor:

3. CAR TRANSPORT (20.000 €):
Before putting its wheels on the salt in Bonneville, our Peugeot 202 will live a great trip: A transport by truck to Le Havre, a loading container on a cargo ship, a crossing of the Atlantic to the port of Long Beach (Los Angeles) via the Panama Canal, and finally 1100km of truck! Not to mention the return, and the checks at the dock or at the borders.

To participate in the Speed ​​Week, we will take the Peugeot 202 to more than 8000km from France and bring it back!

4. LOGISTICS (8,200 €):
To ensure the stewardship during the 15 days of the competition, we must rent a camper for the team (1930 €), as well as a van with tie (880 €) and a trailer for the assistance of the vehicle. record (1900 €), and fuel them with gasoline (700 €). It is also a question of paying the pitches and ensuring the life on the spot during the duration of the competition (1750 €). Registration for the competition is 985 €.

Return flight tickets France - Salt Lake City for the members of the team.

We are very hopeful that the joint buzz of this campaign, the Rapid'Sel Challenge will also allow us to find our last sponsor. Whoever will accompany us, our little 202 and us to the United States. The more you will be in Like, support, follow and share our adventure, the greater our chances of winning it!
