At the Bonneville Salt Flats on August 23, 2006 the fastest man on earth, Andy Green, sped to 350.092mph in a yellow torpedo-shaped car called JCB Dieselmax, creating a new land speed record for a diesel-powered vehicle. The endeavor began with JCB Chairman Sir Anthony Bamford's bold decision to use his company's JCB444 diesel engine -- 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.
