A group of British enthusiasts is to attempt the world land speed record for a steam-powered vehicle.
The current record, officially set in 1906 at 127.659mph by American race driver Fred Marriott, is the oldest unbroken speed record in history. The UK team hopes to reach over 200mph.
The car will have four boilers heated using liquid petroleum gas to build a head of steam. The driver will undergo acceleration of 0.52G, roughly that of a small hatchback.
The drivers, Charles Burnett III and Annette Getty, are experienced speed merchants. Burnett currently holds the water speed record, and Getty was a worker on the Thrust SSC project.
