Podcast – Brooklands Museum Centenary of Speed

In an extra special event at Brooklands Museum, we celebrate 100 years to the day since Kenelm Lee Guinness set a Land Speed Record of 133.75mph on the famous Brooklands banked track in a 350hp Sunbeam.

The celebrations include the recreation of a painting by F Gordon Crosby of the record breaking car speeding past a thundering steam train, with Kenelm Lee Guinness, Grandson of his record breaking namesake, taking the wheel of the restored 350hp Sunbeam, and a real steam train on the main line passing by at just the right moment!

Also on show are several other land speed record vehicles showing that the years haven’t slowed them much, and Andy Green, the current Land Speed Record holder, enjoying the vintage technology and looking to the future.
