Description

The Land Speed Record is a fascinating story of human endeavour - of man and machine battling time to be the fastest. Since 1898 many have dreamed of being the fastest on earth, first with electric, then steam, then petrol, moving forward to the jet car, and into the present and future with rocket power. The glory years of the record are studded with iconic names such as Malcolm and Donald Campbell, Henry Segrave, John Cobb, George Eyston, and more recently Craig Breedlove and Richard Noble. The next race is on for 1,000mph with the latest British attempt by Bloodhound SSC. In this colourfully illustrated introduction, using many photographs from the Motoring Picture Library at Beaulieu, Malcolm Campbell's grandson tells of the brave drivers and powerful machines that have propelled themselves into the record books.

Author Biography

Don is the grandson of Sir Malcolm Campbell CBE and the nephew of Donald Campbell CBE, who between them broke over 21 World Land and Water Speed Records. Don has continued the family business in his own small way, breaking the World Record for a Steam Car, the UK Electric Car Record, and the Guinness World Record for a ride on a lawnmower.
