Electric Car World Speed Record Attempt

Sunday, 18. September 2011

Hi, Graham Hill here, thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you learn a lot and as a result end up driving a great car. In order to do so you can get all the information you need by buying my book, An Insider Guide To Car Finance or use me to finance your next car. Happy driving.

I have to say when I read this it made me smile. I heard that the land speed record breaker, Malcolm Campbell’s great grandson, Don Wales set out to break his own record of 137 mph in an electric car set by him in 2000. The car he was to drive was named similarly to Campbell’s Bluebird and was put to the test on the Pendine Sands in Carmarthernshire but I’m blowed if the attempt failed when the car hit a bloody pothole and damaged the suspension, can you believe it, even the beach has a suspension damaging pothole.

But that wasn’t funny and Don will be back again to attempt to get to 500mph, breaking the current world record of 307mph. The funny part was the manufacturer of the car. Was it an offshoot of McLaren?

Maybe a Japanese manufacturer trying to prove the point that they can make fast electric cars. Nope, the car maker is a company called BBig. Not heard of them?

Well they’re not so much known for car manufacture as milk float manufacture but they do hold the world record for the fastest milk float at a massive average of 73mph over a quarter of a mile – now that’s funny, unless of course you’re the driver! I smiled but I wish them and the team the best of luck. By Graham Hill
