Lee, a 41-year-old New Zealand native, is an accomplished road racer in his home country who has run laps at Isle of Man. But he’d never done any land-speed racing, so his first trip to El Mirage in May was to make shakedown runs on the modified Scout, and also to get his SCTA license, the card that will allow him to shoot for 200 mph at Bonneville. The two-day event in May went off smoothly as the team sorted out tuning and the freshly built bike. Upon return for the one-day July event at El Mirage, Lee became fully licensed, bagged that record, and is set to attack Bonneville. The plan is not to break Burt Munro’s record, but to honor the effort by competing in a different class on the salt upon the 50th anniversary of Burt’s legendary run.
