Re: Blue Bird K4

The trouble with K4 is you'd be stuck with using a Meteor engine again, as per K3. Plenty of them about, though.

Re: Blue Bird K4

Of note- in the case of K4, the name is written 'Blue Bird'.

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Indeed, some of the comments on Facebook have been vile, and some just outright ridiculous. I've seen us accused of only challenging one person because she was a 60 year old woman...we've been accused of hating Coniston because a team mate lived there and hated it too...I've seen comments about need...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

This matter is now way beyond picking up a phone No, it isn't. It's not as if the situation has suddenly changed- it's gone on the same for years.

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Just to say I do get a little frustrated that K7 and DC seem to be the only focus of what we achieved in the UK in the field of record breaking. Sir M, Henry Seagrave, John Cobb and others all deserve to be spoken of and remembered in the same way as we do DC and K7. To be fair Bill has been keen i...
