An Engineer in Wonderland – Greenbird
Turns out that Her Majesty’s subjects have broken yet another land speed record – this time the wind powered one – in a rather nice looking vehicle.
From the press release:
The Greenbird clocked 126.1 mph (202.9 km/h), eclipsing the old, American held, record of 116 mph , set by Bob Schumacher in the Iron Duck in March 1999 at the same location.
It also looks like the same team is going to try it on ice.
Good luck gentlefolk
