Some may find this interesting. It starts today at noon. Over 1900 miles in 24 hours. One rider, averaging over 80mph for 24 hours with a mechanically stock (other than comfort accessories) Arctic Cat for charity.  If there's one sled that can handle those speeds for an extended period of time, its a four cylinder turbo charged Thunder Cat. :nodhead: 

Its the exact same sled that my son has, so he keeps reminding me to watch. :)

My last sled was a 2016. Things have changed a ton since then!

I hope they make the record. The first couple hours may be fun, but it will be work after that.

Looks like 2,104 miles is the final total, which works out to an average of 87.67 miles per hour for 24 hours.  Truth be told, that is about twice as fast as this ignorant Texan thought a snow mobile could go.  I really thought they did 40 or 50 miles per hour max.

Was there an existing record or was this a new thing?

I think, in the future, it can be a bit about adapting the course further to maximize efficiency.  Flat, long, & straight laps would have to be key, since a straight line would surely be most optimal for a top speed and aero perspective.

I think you should send this to Willie for his next attempt.  I'm sure he and his crew never thought about this stuff.
