Just posted an update article detailing the four records that Chip Yates set:-

He also posted a video, with the following note:

This is a 2-minute teaser highlight reel summarizing the incredible 2011 Bonneville BUB Speed Trials sanctioned by the FIM and the AMA, where Chip Yates, Robert Ussery, and the SWIGZ.COM Pro Racing Team collected a history-making 4 FIM Official World Land Speed Records on one bike! FIM World Records are internationally recognized as the pinacle of record-setting and allow record-holders to say "World's Fastest", they are also the most difficult to achieve, with strict rules on everything from the bike to the allowable winds, and require a flying mile average speed in one direction to be immediately followed by a flying mile average speed in the opposite direction within 2-hours on the same day, those two average speeds are then averaged to arrive at the Official World Record. Top speed achieved was "only" 200.7mph due to battery problems, but the team left the salt flats extremely happy and Chip Yates announced his retirement of the electric superbike and also of himself from professional motorcycle racing, leaving on a very high note!
