Wolverhampton's Andy Frost's Red Victor record breaking modified street car team  is partnering with European cycling speed record (149mph) holder Neil Campbell to shake up the world speed records. They will reveal their plans, on the 28th December 2018 in Wolverhampton, to set new world speeds.

Separately Red Victor 3 will attempt to break the prestigious flying mile and standing mile world records within the same event. Neil plans to break 183mph cycling land speed world record and Andy has the world's Fastest Street Legal Drag Car crown in his sights. Their partnership will involve

Andy, a mechanic and drag racer with his team conceived and built Victor 3, Europe's Fastest Street Legal Drag Race Car. It is the latest in a line of street legal cars named 'Red Victor'.  The work on the present car, a 4,000bhp modified 1972 Vauxhall VX4/90 FD VXR spec took three years.  It is taxed, insured and can be legally driven on the street. In establishing the European record it reached a top speed of 250.9mph over a mile covering the distance in 6.02 seconds.

Neil is holder of the European, British and Commonwealth bicycle speed record of 149mph. He is a 44-year-old architect now wants to ride faster than the 183mph world record!  For the record attempt he will be on a £10,000 custom built bike and this is the culmination of over 20 years work by Neil and his team.
