OK, here’s the deal.  This was collected from many, many various sources on the web.  If you can help me complete it or correct it, please chime in.

If I’ve omitted anything, it wasn’t because I wasn’t trying, so spare me any righteous indignation at omissions of your (or your favorite team’s) accomplishments, and fill me in on what I’m missing. The entire structure of Land Speed Racing is pretty haphazard.  Landracing.com is a helpful site.

The sanctioning, governing body is supposedly FIM, but you only get information out of their site if you happen to back into via Google.  I can’t even find the page again.
