New Hour Records Set    

Sam Whittingham and Barbara Buatois - Picture by Chris CortezSeveral new IHPVA one hour records were set on the weekend of July 18th, 2009 during the Michigan Human Powered Speed Challenge at Ford Motor Company\'s Michigan Proving Grounds, in Romeo Michigan. This event, organized by IHPVA board member Mike Mowett was designed to both provide a world class venue for setting records, and to run HPRA style human powered vehicle races for the non-records setting racers. This well attended event represented a return to the large world championships that the IHPVA enjoyed in the 1980s and early 1990s.

IHPVA Records set were:
56.295 mph, 90.598 kph, Sam Whittingham , Varna Tempest
52.208 mph, 84.020 kph, Barbara Buatois, Varna Tempest
