CIBC member Doug Raymond prepares to leave for the Bonneville Salt Flats for his attempt to break the world speed record in the Mini-Rocket Sled A class division. The current record of 892 MPH has held for five years since Segio Yukoff of Russia died in his attempt to break his own record. Let’s wish Doug all the best in this latest endeavor.

What’s left of the Sled after his attempt will be converted into a C Skeeter for the relatively tame pastime of iceboating.
