Hondata CRX Busts Bonneville 200-MPH Barrier - Spinout

Qualification for the 200-mph club consists of not only exceeding 200 mph, but also breaking an existing record.

Dec 3, 2010

New Zealand-born Los Angeles resident Miriam Macmillan hot-shoed the Hondata CRX into the famed Bonneville Salt Flats 200-mph Club at the August 2010 Speedweek time trials. The F/FCC class CRX motivated by a nitrous-boosted 2.1-liter K20 bumped the class bar to 204.364 mph (two-run average), shattering the old mark by 28 mph, which is light years in land-speed terms. Miriam is the third New Zealander and first NZ woman to earn an iconic 200-mph hat (behind her husband Doug, who earned his in 2008). Qualification for the 200-mph club consists of not only exceeding 200 mph, but also breaking an existing record.

Miriam and the Hondata CRX set four different class records during the week, a testament to the reliability of Honda engines and the hard work of the Hondata team, which was running two cars on the salt for Speedweek.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang.
