Re: land speed record

Saw a news alert that he had died; didn't realize he was conscious and talking after the crash. At 300mph even if you low side that's probably too much energy to scrub off.

Re: land speed record

Pioneers in most exploits face great dangers.
While those who come after them may reap the rewards from the path laid out by trial and error, success and failure and the bravery to take up a challenge . . . man's advancement with machinery is owed to a man like that. He was conscious for more than an hour . . . . prayers for him and comfort for all who witnessed it.

Re: land speed record

Did read about this. Gutsy guy.
First thing I thought when I read he was conscious after the crash, then died later, was that he likely tore his aortic artery and bleed out internally. Sad.
