‘Jetbike’ speed test to prepare for 400+mph world two-wheeled land speed record
What: This is a vehicle test in preparation for an attempt to break the current ‘world two wheeled land speed' record. Enclosed in a space age body the vehicle is uniquely propelled by a specially modified helicopter engine complete with an afterburner! Conditions permitting, a number of UK speed records could be challenged, during the tests.
Who: Richard Brown, an Oxfordshire based in engineer, conceived and built a vehicle. In 1999 Richard rode his rocket powered creation Mach 3 Challenger to an officially recorded speed of 332.887mph, the fastest speed at that time.Since then the record has been set at over 370mph
