The history of speed and the intense rivalry between different ships, planes, cars and trains in their bid to be the fastest Combining stories of technological advance with tales of individual heroism, Speed Machines captures the spirit of an age when speed was all-important. The 1930s was a highpoint for ocean-going liners. Crossing the Atlantic by boat was the only way to reach the US and competition between the French and British shipyards was never less than fierce, a focus for patriotic pride. The British Queen Mary and French Normandie epitomised the golden age of the ocean liners, floating Art Deco palaces that competed intensely to win the Blue Riband: the prize for the fastest Atlantic crossing; a Holy Grail for the two countries - and a great bit of marketing. Later episodes of Speed Machines tell of the rivalry between Pan Am and Imperial Airways to start the first trans-Atlantic passenger air service; of competing train companies vying to run the fastest service between London and Scotland; of the competition between Bentley and Mercedes to dominate the race track and the rivalry between Malcolm Campbell and Henry Seagrave to take the Land Speed Record in the 1930s. Each episode uses archive footage to evoke the spirit of the era, and includes interviews with those involved in the events. Originally broadcast in 2003. Content licensed by DRG Distributions.

burt munro land speed record.Herbert James 'Burt' Munro (25 March 1899-6 January 1978) was a New Zealand motorcycle racer. Burt Munro lived in the city Invercargill on the South Island. In 1920 he bought an Indian Scout motorcycle where he was for many years tinkering to make it faster and faster. In 1938 he made this his first speed record. In the 50s and 60s he has motor racing ten visits that are held each year at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. Here he has three times the speed record for the class under 1000 cc. His last record (1967, 295.44 km / h) has not been broken yet. Once his speed was measured at 324.85 km / h, but this is not an official record. The Indian Scout, which was named by the Munro Munro Special, is still on display in a shop in Invercargill. The story about Munro was filmed in 2005 in The World's Fastest Indian with Anthony Hopkins in the lead. movie The World's Fastest Indian.music..Yello Hawaiian Chance* the copy rights are not my* Classic TT race - Isle of Man

Bloodhound SSC (Four wheels, 7.5 tonnes, 135,000 horsepower) made its first public runs at Cornwall Airport Newquay, hitting a peak speed of 210mph. The Bloodhound Project is an international education initiative focussed around a 1,000mph (1,609 km/h) World Land Speed Record. The primary aim is to inspire the next generation of scientist and engineers by showcasing STEM subjects (science, technology engineering and mathematics) in the most exciting way possible. Bloodhound SSC is a combination of fast jet, F1 car and spaceship. The Project is followed in over 220 countries and territories. At full speed, Bloodhound SSC will cover a mile (1.6km) in 3.6 seconds – that’s 4.5 football pitches laid end to end, per second, or 300m in the blink of an eye.

Triumph is attempting to break the land speed record in a 1000 bhp rascal. A feat of engineering and guts that will see the machine break the 605 kph record. Motorcycle racing took shape the minute the second motorcycle was made. Then came the madness of setting speed records. Being the fastest man or building the fastest machine on the planet gave a new sense of high and want. It is intoxication indeed. Setting records for the whole world to know became a fascination and people spent all time and money into this pursuit of speed. The oldest British manufacturer of motorcycles, Triumph, is no less. Following a successful practice session at the Bonneville Salt Flats previously, they achieved a speed of 275 mph to become the world’s fastest ever Triumph in a monstrous build and now they have confirmed the attempt to set a new outright motorcycle Land Speed World Record in 2017 at the same venue the coming weekend.

Imagine a place that is so flat and barren that allows you to see the curvature of the Earth, so much a world of its own where not even the simplest form of life can exist. Motorcar racing has taken place at the salt flats since 1914. The first land speed record was set there in 1914 by American race car driver, Teddy Tetzlaff who was well known for his Indy 500 racing fame. Tetzlaff would set this first record in a custom built 200hp car known as the Blitzen-Benz. The Fastest cars to set land speed records on the Bonneville Salt Flats These three events welcome cars, trucks, and motorcycles. The "Bub Motorcycle Speed Trials" are for motorcycles only. World records are contested at the Mike Cook Shoot Out in September. The Southern California Timing Association and the Utah Salt Flats Racing Association organizes and plans the multi-vehicle events, but all event promoters contribute to prepping and maintaining the salt. "Speed Week" events in August were canceled for the second year in a row in 2015, due to poor conditions of the salt in certain parts of the flats. The salt flats had been swamped by heavy rains earlier in the year, which usually happens, but the rains also triggered mudslides from surrounding mountains and onto a section of the flats used for the land-speed racing courses. land speed records established at Bonneville over the Century. 1914 Teddy Tetzlaff, Blitzen Benz, 141.73 mph 1935 Sir Malcolm Campbell, Bluebird, 301.126 mph, 1940 Ab Jenkins, Mormon Meteor III, 161.180 mph, 24 hr endurance run, piston 1947 John Cobb, Railton Mobil Special, 394.194 mph, 1960 Mickey Thompson First American to break the 400 mph barrier, Challenger 1 1964 Craig Breedlove, Spirit of America, 526.277 mph, 1965 Craig Breedlove, Spirit of America, 600.601 mph, 1967 Burt Munro, Munro Special, 183.586 mph, 1920 Indian Scout motorcycle 1970 Gary Gabelich, Blue Flame, 622.407 mph, 2001 Don Vesco, Turbinator, 458.440 mph, 2006 Chris Carr, BUB Streamliner, 350.884 mph, motorcycle 2006 Andy Green, JCB Dieselmax, 350.092 mph, diesel goo.gl/z8bf6X

When Bill Mason worked for Shell Oil in their film unit he created a series about the history of motor racing from the turn of the 20th Century to the outbreak of World War II. This fourth part covers the mid 1930s up till 1939 when Formula racing was dominated by the German teams of Mercedes Benz and Auto Union. Their racing efforts were underwritten by Adolf Hitler who wanted to demonstrate the superiority of the Master race on the race track. The German cars were dubbed the Silver Arrows because of their sleek designs and silver paint. The Nazi swastika adorned the cars and the drivers became legends. Alfred Neubauer managed the Mercedes team and it was the most professional organization motor racing had ever seen. His drivers included Rudolf Caracciola, Hermann Lang, Manfred von Brauchitsch, and the Englishman Richard Seaman. Auto Union's most famous driver, Bernd Rosemeyer died attempting to break a land speed record held by rival Mercedes and he was replaced by his good friend Tazio Nuvolari. Nuvolari had been the chief driver for Alfa Romeo but competing against the Germans became almost impossible. It was a thrilling time but the dark side of this enterprise has stigmatized ever since. In addition to the Formula racing we see the land speed attempts by John Cobb, George Easton and Sir Malcolm Campbell. The races about Indy with Wilbur Shaw. And England's Richard Seaman racing his Napier before being scooped up by Mercedes. This version was prepared for release in Italy but I've chosen to use the English language sound track.
