Pete Hoy riding Blue Dwarf had an off at Santa Pod
"Yes i crashed @ 70-80mph
at the 330ft marker!
Header tank blew spewing antifreeze over the back tyre after the nitrous lit me up"
"Brilliant run, previous baby run was a gentle 12.5 at 106mph with a pathetic 60ft!
This baby was half a second quicker @ 60ft! just settled into the ride, nice and tucked, nitrous on 100% and she spit me off!!!!!! Hit the track hard! but rolled with it, head took out the 330ft timing light lol!
Minimal damage to Blue Dwarf (in fact I might be back out next weekend!) just need to fix the head gasket and rig the header to blow into a catch tank (in case it ever happens again!)Me? Bruised battered but not broken. No worries mate I`m ok and looking foward to finishing
this bloody run!
I think we're all please
Pete walked away !
All the best Pete

Welcome to 100mphscooter.com
The Ultimate High Performance Scooter Club
The majority of Scooters have not achieved the magical
100mph, but all the same with today's tuning and today's
tuners, more scooters are actually breaking the 100mph barrier.
We want to know just how fast your Scooter really is, and include your efforts in our Speed & Records listing.
Please Register for membership and Submit your Speed. If you have any Photo's or Video
let us have them also so we can add them to the site.
Whether you have managed 50mph, 70mph or 90mph, in fact whatever speed you have achieved we want to know, and we will list you and your machine, including its spec for the whole world to see just what you have achieved.
Our ambition is to assist the scooterist who's aim is to
record that magical 100mph or 160.93kph, by listing events and sharing information between tuners and riders to get you there.
Thist year there are a number of 1/4 Mile Sprint events and Top Speed events. There are a couple of Scooter Only weekend events and a National Record Event all which can be seen on our Events page.
A trip to Germany to the Scooter Centre Kolne 'Max Speed Festival' is on the cards, but we are awaiting confirmation that the event is on.
For those of you who would like to take part in an
event but are not sure what to do, our The Idea page
will advise you on how 1/4 mile sprint event's and a
top speed event's are run. Take a look, its not as
difficult as you may think.
You don't have to reside in the UK to be a member of 100mphscooter.com. All you need to do is Register
by completing the form at Submit Your Speed, email your timing slip (and a photo if you have one) and your information will be added to our listing.
Each time you improve your 'Top Speed' simply re-submit your details and we will update your speed
and profile accordingly.
Firstly, you dont have to take part in any championship
to take part at a 1/4 mile sprint event.
You can simply turn up to an event, run your scooter and
take home a timing slip to prove exactly how fast it is.
However, be aware that at some venues and some events
you can get away with a full motorcycle licence, others you
will require an ACU race licence, which you should be able
to buy at the event on Single Day or Full Year format.
Anyone wishing to take part in the 100mphscooter.com 1/4 Mile Sprint Championship is required to make themselves a member of the Northern Section of the National Sprint Association.
Membership will cost you £25.00 for the year, and an ACU Race Licence will cost £43.00 for the year which will enable you to compete at all NSA events.
Alternately, if you only intend taking part in our six round championship or a handfull of events, a day licence will cost
only £7.00 at each event.

NSA - Northern membership can be purchased by downloading the membership form and posting it to
Jayne Glover at the address on the bottom of the form. Jayne can also be contacted by email or by telephone
on 01202 880509.
To purchase an ACU licence you first need to make yourself a member of the NSA when you will be given
a unique reference number.
If you are taking part in the 100mphscooter.com Championship then your membership needs to be with the NSA - Northern Section.
Once your membership is sorted, you can purchase your licence online using the unique reference number. Or if you prefer you can download the application form, complete it and post it to Helen Greathead. If you have any questions contact Helen Greathead by email
or call Helen direct on 01724 347801.
Or you can simply purchase your membership and licence at an event.
Additionally, if you go to an event as a spectator and the
'Sprint Monster' gets you, catch hold a Scooter Sprinter, one of the NSA Members or one of the event organisers
who will advised what to do at which point you will begin having a fantastic day.
Even taking part at a single event your speeds achieved will be uploaded onto our Speed & Records page.
However, if you do intend taking part at an event it is advisable to make yourself a member prior to the event.
When you arrive at an event you will be all revved up wanting to race and you wont want to be hanging around sorting your membership and licence out.

From Street Scooter to Top Scooter
The idea of 1/4 Mile Sprinting, and the procedure for
Sprint Events and Top Speed Weekends
A number of venues used for events are disused airfields.
Some are subjected to noise restrictions by local councils.
To continue using these venues for sprinting and top speed
events everyone needs to comply with the noise restrictions.
If we dont, we run the risk of loosing the venues.
With this in mind, I have gathered information from a number of
Dirt Bike and Moto Cross web sites and forums for advice on how to quieten 2 stroke engines for the db, or sound meter test.
100mphscooter.com Hoody's, Patches, Shirts & Beanie Hats are available.
Or choose your own colours to match your scooter.
Hoody's are £25.00 plus post, and
patches are £5.00 plus post. Iím happy to combined delivery to reduce cost.
Contact me with:
1. Hoody size
2. Hoody colour
3. Embroidery colour
4. Do you want a zip
5. Do you want a patch
6. I need a delivery address.
Iíll reply with the total cost and paypal

On 02/10/2011, at Elvington Airfield, York, UK.
The riders from 100mphscooter.com (with assistance from Straightliners) held "SCOOTER SOOTOUT"
our first ever 100% Scooter Event.
Having more than 850 people come through the gate and 125 riders taking part in the Sprinting, Top Speed, Moto Gymkhana, Dyno Shootout and other attractions, the event was considered an overall success. Immediately after the event, discussions with Straightliners and Elvington Events were positive toward a Scooter Shootout event in 2012 and we were actually given the go ahead for a weekend event in 2012.
Due to the increased interest towards the 2012 event we were concerned that Scooter Shootout may become too big to try and relay the relevant information via the 100mph website, so the domain name scootershootout.com was purchased so the event has its own dedicated website to keep everyone up to date on 2012 and future Scooter Shootout events
A basic layout has been uploaded which you can see if you follow this Scooter Shootout link.
But while you are here, you may as well click on the images below to see the results from the 2011 event.
