Guardian

Only in Britain would somebody invent a new kind of steam car, build it is a shed and then take it to Bonneville Salt Flats to break a world record that has stood for a hundred years.

And only the Guardian would try and find a way to make this kind of effort “green”.

I only refer to it at all because I enjoy this kind of eccentricity. Oh and it also might happen in New Zealand too – it remnided me of th “The World’s Fastest Indian”
