The 68th annual Speed Week provided Team Vesco with challenges as well as high expectations for future land speed records. TURBINATOR II arrived on the salt fully loaded with a new T55-L-712F turbine engine as well as the all new, state-of-the-art electronic control to manage fuel, traction, engine temperature, and provide emergency shut down.
Advanced Turbine Services and Arizona Turbine Technology also arrived with a full crew to operate and fine tune the new systems. These advances helped propel TURBINATOR II from an analog system into the digital world - making our goal of reaching 500+ MPH a likely reality.
ATS and AZTT crew: James Gabl, Jeremy Nicolaides, Ken Braccio, David Crowe, Elden Crom
