Världsrekord 1911

USA. Nytt världsrekord i Indianapolis

race2

Hmm. Hastighetsmätningen var ännu inte standardiserad 1911.   Vinnarens hastighet var 74,7 em/t . Okey då vet vi.
En engelsk mil är 1,609344 kilometer.
Hastigheten vid världsrekordet var alltså 120km/h .  Bra gasat 1911.

För övrigt visade sig en engelsk mile  vara samma som en amerikansk mile något som inte var självklart enligt en jämförelse av sträckan mile i olika länder vid olika tider.
