JCB Dieselmax speed record car gets another award
In 2006 British construction equipment manufacturer JCB sponsored a successful attempt at capturing the world land speed for diesel powered vehicles. The JCB Dieselmax achieved a two way average of just over 350mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats on August 23, 2006. The Royal Automobile Club recently awarded the Dewar trophy to the JCB team for their achievement, making them only the thirty-ninth recipient of the prize. The RAC first established the Dewar Trophy in 1906, but only awards it in years when they feel there is a deserving recipient.
