There'll Be Blue Birds Over the White Salt of Lake Eyre

This last Thursday, July 17th, was the 50th Anniversary of Donald Campbell's breaking of the 394 mph world land speed record. Here on the salt flats the Bluebird CN-7 was at the culmination of all the test run testing. Donald was working to a speed or 500 mph. He did set a record at 403 mph on the two runs required. Although disappointed, his record stood for a gas-turbine wheel driven engine until now. the Bristol-Siddeley Proteus, the Bristol Aeroplane Company's first successful gas-turbine engine delivered over 4,000 hp (3,000 kW).

All other land speed records have been make with jet or rocket driven cars.

Check out some recovered video/film from the land and later water speed record runs at the BBC.








Help Save These Magazines

Scott Morris rescued boxes of Autosport magazine from a trip to the dump. The collection of weekly magazine dates from 1977 to 2001. The collection is not complete but it is a damn good start. By the way they are free gratis!

Hamilton's
Rockin' The Waterfront Cruise Nights
need some

The cruises take place every Thursday evening, at the beautiful Pier 4 Park at the foot of John Street in Hamilton (weather permitting). Volunteering need not be a huge commitment, and can be as little as assisting in parking while the regular helpers take a hot-dog break.

Half an hour with a flag in your hand will make all the difference!

The Thursday cruises have started, and the website is: http://www.rockinthewaterfront.ca/

Pier 4 Park is a very scenic spot and attendance often exceeds 300 cars.

Please help out if you can!

Contact John Griffith at griffnumber1@sympatico.ca or the Contact us at Rockin The Waterfront.

Regards,

John Griffith, Chair
British Saloon Car Club of Canada
