Vintage Land speed racing is not just about breaking speed records. It’s about imagination, science, design and countless hours of hard work coming together to create a truly unique machine. Alp Sungurtekin wants to build a vintage motorcycle with a 650cc A-PF engine that will beat the coveted 200mph mark.
