Land Speed Record Steam Car completes tests.

Hi All,

What an exciting day, the car made two runs, accelerating under difficult conditions, using a track that required the driver Don Wales to dog leg around poor surface conditions, (See video on front page) the car still managed 72mph on the first run and 80.8 mph on the second run, Telemetry computer readouts indicated steam temperature at 300C 572F and pressure at 507.6 psi.
The crew and all involved were overjoyed, USA here they come!

All the best, Jeff.
