Spanaway, WA (PRWEB) July 12, 2011
Take a converted F-104 Star fighter powered by the 50,000hp GE J-79 turbo-jet engine, place Leslie Porterfield behind the wheel and this October we may see a New World Record set for the Fastest Woman on Earth.
Leslie Porterfield, (in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest woman on two wheels), will drive the North American Eagle at speeds twice her current record in an attempt to establish a new World Land Speed Record for a woman driver.
“I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of such a dynamic team. I am honored to be part of their mission to go after the absolute unlimited land speed record. This is an opportunity of a lifetime!” Leslie Porterfield stated.
“The run in October will not only establish a new World Land Speed Record for Leslie and the North American Eagle, it will also act as a practice run on our attempt of breaking the current World Land Speed Record of 763mph in 2012,” commented Ed Shadle co-owner and driver of the North American Eagle.
“The North American Eagle has the power and the aerodynamics to break the record in 2012. The underdog team of The North American Eagle is exactly what is needed to lift the spirits of this country. The only thing stopping what could be the greatest events setting a new speed record for a woman driver and for the title of the fastest person on earth is a sponsor,” stated Douglas Schwartz, Media Director for the team.
Companies spend tens of millions of dollars annually on a single race car in events filled with other vehicles sponsored by competitive companies. It is rare that an opportunity comes along where millions of people around the world will be following a series of events and one company can have exclusive sponsorship to these events and have its name associated with these records for the rest of time.
