>>> Student’s Attempt to Break Water Speed Record

Not really my style, but a neat project and some interesting technology.

A team of engineers are aiming to break the world water speed record, on the lake where Donald Campbell died in his Bluebird.

The Quicksilver team will try to bring the record back to Britain on Coniston Water in the Lake District, the scene of the disaster which killed Donald Campbell in 1967 as he tried to break the 300mph barrier.
