Land Speed Record for Wind-Powered Car broken, now 126.1mph (link)




Attempt on Land Speed Record for steam-powered cars (currently 128mph) fails (link)



And Andy Green, current land speed record holder (for any car), going to be racing - for the first time ever - an Elise in order to raise money for Bloodhound SSC, planed to break 1000mph. On land. (link)



That steam-powered car looks fantastic, by the way.

cool, I wonder what the wind speed was when the sail car thingy went that fast

also Id love to know some specs on that steam car, like what kind of steam engine and boilers it uses.
