200 MPH

    Earning entrance into any 200 MPH Club is a challenge.  You do not get in by just making a 200 mph pass.  That pass also must set a record.  That’s right, you get in by making a record pass at over 200 mph.

    During the LTA sanctioned event on July 31- August 1, 2010 at the former Loring Air Force Base in Limestone, Maine, Greg Neal of TLN Motorsports piloted the teams 2008 Kawasaki ZX-10R to a top speed of 203.965 mph down the standing 1.5 mile course earning his way into the Loring Timing Associations 1.5 mile 200 MPH Club.   It was the first 200 Club for Greg Neal and TLN Motorsports.



    TLN Motorsports earned entrance to their second 200 MPH Club on October 30-31, 2010 at the ECTA sanctioned event on the famed Maxton Monster Mile in Maxton, NC.  Rider Greg Neal once again piloted the 2008 Kawasaki ZX-10R to a top speed of 201.072 mph down the standing mile course.  That run put them in the Prestigious ECTA Maxton 200 MPH Club.  They were the last motorcycle to get into that 2 Club even though 5 more events were run in Maxton.  It was by far the hardest 200 Club to make it into and the icing on the cake of a very successful 2010 racing season.




    The third 200 MPH Club for TLN Motorsports once again came at the LTA sanctioned event in Limestone, Maine. on July 15-17, 2012 as rider, Greg Neal took the TLN Motorsports 2008 Kawasaki ZX-10R through the standing mile traps at a top speed of 203.041 mph earning entrance into the LTA 1 Mile 200 MPH Club. 


    TLN Motorsports and rider Greg Neal earned entrance to a fourth 200 MPH Club on April 27 - 28, 2012 at the ECTA sanctioned event on the 1 mile in Wilmington, Ohio with a top speed run of 202.291 mph.  Once again the TLN Motorsports 2008 Kawasaki ZX-10R had gotten the job done.  While the ZX-10R would go on to set many National Land Speed Racing Records, 53 and counting, and run much faster speeds 211 mph and counting, the runs into the 200 mph club are always the most memorable. 

    The Kawasaki ZX-10R is powered by a N/A 998cc engine built at KWS Motorsports   Rods and pistons are from CP-Carrillo  Cams are from Web Camshafts   Brock’s Performance provided the short meg exhaust, BST (Blackstone Tec) wheels and Alisyn Lubricants.  Worldwide Bearings provided the ceramic wheel and transmission bearings.  Vortex Racing supplied the sprockets and chain.  Ballistic Performance provided the battery for the bike.   Brewer Cycles helped us in acquiring the ZX-10R.  Tiger Racing Products put the aero front fender on.  Millennium Technologies took care of the head and cylinders.  We only use VP Racing Fuels in the ZX-10R.  While there were others that helped that bike along the way, these were the key players that put TLN Motorsports, the 2008 Kawasaki ZX-10R and Greg Neal into four 200 MPH Clubs.






    As we all know the goal is to always go faster, to push the limits.  TLN Motorsports and rider Greg Neal have a goal of obtaining their AA license which will require a pass of 250 mph.  Stay tuned as the ZX-10R could be the bike to make that happen.
