At the Bonneville Salt Flats on 23 August 2006 the fastest man on earth, Andy Green, sped to 350.092mph in a yellow torpedo-shaped car called JCB Dieselmax, creating a sensational new land speed record for a diesel-powered vehicle. This was the culmination of one of the most remarkable and adventurous projects in British motorsport history. The endeavour began with JCB Chairman Sir Anthony Bamford's bold decision to use his company's JCB444 diesel engine - normally used in diggers - as the basis for a record-breaking car, in order to showcase his products on a world stage. This book tells the whole dramatic story from the inside.
