Flower of Scotland – An Inspiring Story

For Speed Week 2011, Filmmaker Josh Clason had the opportunity to follow around Speed Scotland and their attempt to break the 300mph club out at Bonneville.

It was incredible to watch the French/Scots alliance that works very well go through so much adversity and punishment that the salt can dish out in their attempts to reach their dreams.

It takes months to get the car ready, weeks to ship it over, and another week to get it out to Bonneville. For one week out of the year they can try and make this possible and it was an incredible experience to be a part of the learning curve Bonneville demands. It takes a lot of tenacity to run out at the salt and when you pair up traveling halfway across the globe, it becomes a major undertaking.

Going 300 MPH is never an easy task but it becomes especially difficult when you are located a continent away from the only place you can test and tune your 1 liter highly modified 400 hp turbocharged Kawasaki ZX-11 engine streamliner.
