It is with much sadness that we report the passing of a Champion.
Jim Peruto who during the Nevada Open Road Challenge on May 20, 2012, smashed through the then, existing twelve year record of 207mph, with a new average speed of 217.56 mph and a top speed of 253 mph (originally reported as 244 but later verified at 253) to set a new Guinness World Record.
Not wanting to burden his family and friends, Jim had been secretly battling cancer for the past three years.
Jim's family is working on his obituary and I will share it with you when it is complete.
As per Jim's wishes there will be no burial as he will be cremated. There are no immediate plans for a memorial service.jp_w_car
