Buckeye Bullet chases down another record

Ohio State’s Venturi Buckeye Bullet team successfully chased down another international record for electric land speed vehicles. Professional driver Roger Schroer guided the Venturi Buckeye Bullet 3 to an average two-way speed of 212.615 miles per hour. Although heavy rains forced the cancellation of Speedweek in Wendover, Utah, the team was able to secure the new record during a private event. Venturi Buckeye Bullet 3 was designed and built over the past four years by undergraduate and graduate students at the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) in partnership with Monaco-based Venturi Automobiles. According to CAR director Giorgio Rizzoni, “The Buckeye Bullet experience is a unique training opportunity and proving ground for our brightest and most dedicated students, many of whom have moved on to successful careers in industry at companies such as Ford, Boeing, A123 and Lockheed I Martin.”
