So I just read the book for a second time... I had to wait for 2 new copies to arrive, thanks Mark Reid. And I'm awaiting my signed Hardcover... which I will treasure πŸ™‚ I will leave a review on amazon shortly, I didn't want to review it until I'd read it twice. So shortly there will be another 2 copies of ROSCO The Fastest Aussie on Earth out in Street Libraries, I have already put 2 out there. I put these out with a note to please keep them circulating, so it will raise awareness of the Aussie Invader 5R project; if you like the book go buy a copy... even better buy a second one to put in a Street Library! Its a great read, when you consider the drive the passion, and how it all could have ended up much differently for Rosco without that dream to chase. So go buy a copy, or better yet more than one; and help Aussie Invader 5R and Rosco towards eating some serious horizon really soon! Stay Safe & Keep Well Everyone πŸ™‚

An incredible story about an incredible Aussie! πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

You are my hero

A brilliant book telling the story of a dedicated man and his team with a dream and a vision. I have no doubt that Rosco will achieve his dream and go into the history books as the fastest Aussie on Earth. Best of luck to all involved.

We sent a copy of ROSCO The Fastest Aussie on Earth to Jeremy Clarkson. We were hoping this was going to appear across the Internet. So far, it hasn't, so we improvised. LOL

This tail fin and horizontal stabiliser is never coming apart. There are well over 300 bolts and screws, each one matched to it's own location. It took 800 hours of CNC machining to create this tail fin. Sponsored by Calm Aluminium, Kentin Engineering and Newland Drilling and Mining Equipment. ... See MoreSee Less

Today we enjoyed the company and visit to our shop from our long time friend Geoff Develin from Canberra. Geoff owns Develin Engineering over there and was the original motivator to design and build the Canberra Drag Racing venue in his state. He was also a great friend of our recently deceased jet racer Chuck Haynes. Develin Engineering has followed our progress on Aussie Invader 5R since its inception. Seen here in our photo are Josh and Paul Moses, great friends and supporters of our project, me, Geoff and his RAAF pilot son Michael who is currently based at Pearce AFB in Perth but about to transfer to Williamtown AFB in NSW. ...

They say if your life was a book, make it a bestseller, Rosco has literally and metaphorically done that. As an engineering student from New Zealand who has been interested in the history of the land speed record and current projects, I endorse this book and Rosco's unshakable mission.

Just started reading the book this morning. On page 27.

What was the record speed for this ? And year please ?

Saw this and met u at Ravenswood drags on a practice day when Chuck Swift was there with his wheel standing chuck mobile and titanium blocks on the back set fire to the bush land at the end of the track

Very cool picture with landspeed and aF-18

Who's the pilot in the pic with Rosco?

I thought it were the UK's Thrust 2 to start with, it looks very similar just that's Blue and our Thrust 2 is Gold and a Circular opening rather than a sort of Rectangle.
