Another Land Speed car (Carbinite LSR) was involved in a high speed crash. We wish Rob a speedy recovery. ...

We think breaking the World land speed record is one of the hardest sporting endeavours. Building the car is tough, finding the right place to run is almost impossible and getting people and companies to believe in you and support this lengthy process is even harder! Oh well we come from a country where everything is out to get you. πŸ˜‚ ...

As Douglas Adams said ”When visiting Australia,. Always carry a stick”

Rugged place!

I sometimes wish my parents had taken up the £10 emigration offer of the 1960's. I've never been but I think Australia would have been a great place to grow up.

That's Australia

Awww

I am free to help.......24-7......I bealive.....

And if your silly enough to think that this is real , then all hope is lost

We have all of that in Florida except for the dingos.

WOW Rosco Mcglashan, thanks for sharing this truly inspirational story. What a remarkable determination by Kitty O'Neil not to let her hearing challenge determine her course in life but she chose to rise above it and be Victor and not a victim.

Great story πŸ‘πŸ½

One VERY special lady πŸ‘πŸ»

In 1976 in southeastern Oregon's Alvord Desert, O'Neil set the land-speed record for female drivers. She piloted a $350,000 hydrogen peroxide powered three-wheeled rocket car built by Bill Fredrick called the “SMI Motivator”. It reached an average speed of 512.710 mph (825.127 km/h), with a peak speed of 621 miles per hour (999 km/h). O'Neil's runs reportedly used 60% of the available thrust, and O'Neil estimated that she could have exceeded 700 miles per hour (1,100 km/h) with full power

Hydrogen Peroxide, makes heaps of thrust but is mighty dangerous stuff. As you well know Rosco.

I have a can proudly displayed on my memorabilia shelf so I can look at it daily. I don't know how many times I have explained what it is to others. Thanks for fixing me up with one, Rosco.

I have a full unopened carton in the shed. Kept if safe all this time

Still got 2 cans Rosco. As a non i drinker should have them forever.

Wish I had some Rosco

Yeah drank a few in recognition of the mean feat πŸ™‚ But not my usual drop LOL πŸ™‚ Love the AMPOL Race Suit... brings back memories, I worked in an AMPOL Part Time when you did this ROSCO πŸ™‚ I'm as Australian as AMPOL... that jingle got stuck in your head... and I know it was very hard to find sponsors back then, just as it is now, so good on them for any support they offered. I look forward to drinking a new drop when you smash it next time Mate πŸ™‚

No but I love the idea πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Drain the beer. The acids eventually eat through and you will have a mess. I learnt the hard way.

Didn't know about the beer. But it is West end lol. Would have bought some for memorabilia
