British Steam Car Challenge


In just a few months, your country faces a huge challenge - the Steam Challenge. At Bonneville, the Union Jack Flag will take on the world to set a new record for the fastest steam powered car.

In the best British Bulldog tradition, it's a battle involving invention and endeavour against mighty forces. Will engineering excellence and enthusiasm prevail? To find out, the Steam Challenge needs your help and support, in return for which you get a place in the history books.

A donation of just one pound gets your name, company name (or the name of a friend or family member you nominate) included on the Union Jack Flag livery on the British Steam Car and will help Charles Burnett III bring the world record to these shores. Not only will you be helping raise the funds needed to break the record but your name will be cemented in posterity and will be a permanent feature of the car when it is subsequently displayed at Beaulieu National Motor Museum alongside other legendary Land Speed vehicles like Bluebird and Golden Arrow. Across Great Britain, donations such as yours will be flooding in. Don't wait, be part of history today. Pledge your one pound donation now by going to the donation page at

Remember: Your country needs you, stand together and we will win!
