Ohio State Engineering Student Team Shatters Landspeed Record for a Fuel Cell Car, 302.87mph

For the second time this week, Ohio State’s Buckeye Bullet 2 team has exceeded the international speed record it set in 2007.

 

Late yesterday (9/25), the Bullet set an average speed of 302.877 mph, which is pending certification by the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile before it can be called an official record.

The hydrogen fuel cell powered landspeed streamliner racer and its engineering student team made the record attempts in the Salt Flats in Utah this week. On Wednesday, the Bullet reached an average 299.91 mph, far surpassing the certified record of 132.129 mph the vehicle set in 2007.

The Bullet was required to make two speed runs, one each in opposite directions and within 60 minutes, in order to be considered for the record, which is officially determined by averaging the speed of the two runs.

 

This latest record represents several firsts for the Ohio team:
