The Honda F1 goes really fast!

The Honda Racing team completed its Bonneville 400 challenge on Friday but narrowly failed to hit the 400kph mark it was hoping to reach on the salt flats of Bonneville in Utah.

Alan van der Merwe has, however, broken a number of class records with a best average speed over two runs at 397.360kph.

The Bonneville Salt Flats have been the venue of speed record attempts since 1914 when Teddy Tezlaff drove a Blitzen Benz to 141.73mph.
