Re: Electric Landspeed Record Attempt

I know we are talking about the British record here, but here is a link to the current Electric World Land Speed Record Holder http://www.dwra.net/settingrecords.htm I would think that Don's Bluebird Electric record will be under threat very soon if this is possible over the pond. :cry: Am I right i...
