Byron Bay resident Jo Fysh made the two-day trek to the salt flats of South Australia and returned with a Australian Land Speed Record. ‘My record is 57.5 mph (92 kph) and my top speed for the week was 65.8 mph, so great speeds for a little 50cc bike. Very happy and a very tough week due to extreme weather conditions but got the job done,’ she posted on social media. Jo was riding with the Affick Land Speed Racing Team.
