The Venturi VBB 3 sets a tentative class record at the Bonneville Salt Flats, doing 240.320 mph. Conditions were so bad that the team couldn't go faster.
Electric Land Speed Record
Ford has sent a diesel Ranger Thunder double cab to join up with team Bluebird as they attempt to shatter an existing electric vehicle land speed record. This after a setback in August where the Bluebird slid sidewards at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour while gunning for the record at Pendine Sands in Wales, prematurely ending the session.
