A fascinating story of human endeavour - of man and machine battling time to be the fastest. Since 1898 many have dreamed of being the fastest on earth, first with electric, then steam, then petrol, moving forward to the jet car and into the present and future with rocket power. The glory years of the record are studded with iconic names such as Malcolm and Donald Campbell, Henry Segrave, John Cobb, George Eyston and more recently Craig Breedlove and Richard Noble.
