Troy Marland set a new UIM unlimited displacement world Kilo record today in Taree Australia with a speed of 153.794 mph.The team unpacked the boat from the transporter and had one attempt today resulting in the record.they will run at least once tomorrow and will be aiming for 160mph.
Unfortunately another boat in the unlimited displacement class flipped and was destroyed, The driver Bruce Jordan was rushed to hospital but was later released without any serious injury, The safety cell did its job.
