2010 Arctic Cat Z1 Turbo Sets New Speed Record
Worlds Fastest Snowmobile Update
Press Release from Arctic Cat —
Thief River Falls, Minn. (Sept. 28, 2009) – Weekend after weekend, Team Arctic racers are proving they are the ones to beat when piloting the World’s Fastest Stock Snowmobiles.
Instead of shredding grass, Team Arctic speed aces turned their attention to the Martin, Michigan Speedway to burn rubber on the asphalt. Piloting a stock 2010 Z1 Turbo, Team Howard’s Jeff Jaquish from Racine, Wis., nailed a 142 mph/9.006 E.T. pass in the quarter mile, beating Glen Hall’s previous record of 137.99mph and a 9.395 E.T. (done on a 2009 Z1 Turbo).
Team owner Billy Howard said of the record, “We were hoping for the first 8 second pass, but this record really gets me excited for the speed of these stock Z1 Turbos.
“Just like Glen Hall’s Z1 Turbo last year, ours has a stock motor, stock turbo and stock rear suspension. We can both honestly say that Arctic Cat does make the World’s Fastest Snowmobiles!”
