I just saw this and thought it well worth a share. I most strongly recommend full screen with the sound right up! :D
After that brown-trouser run he got back in and did it all again to get the record. Certainly one to sort the men from the boys!

That is AMAZING! Thanks for posting it - I had not heard of this incredible bike before.
I can't help but think of the Burt Munro after watching this. What a great film "World's Fastest Indian" is!

Has anybody read the book "World's Fastest Coffin on Water" - a biography of Ken Warby? I was wondering if it was worth buying.

The website is a little incomplete, but it seems there's an attempt on the UK Land Speed record due in a couple of weeks- apparently author David Tremayne is involved?

David and I ended up sharing a hymn book at the Corp's funeral and at some point I remember him mentioning that he'd bought a couple of R-R Viper engines for a car - then I promptly forgot all about it.

I think that was the intention ................. as the purchases made involved more than some motors.

First public outing of the jet car (Team AirAsia STAY GOLD) was at former RAF Kemble - with the Red Arrows sitting on the taxiway of their former home and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight overhead during the day.

Webmaster will be fettling the site I am told.

I don't follow all the fast boats stuff in the slightest, but this does sound exciting-
