Since your record programme came to an end, Robin started the Speed Record Club and with it the newsletter Fast FACTS. After 21 years the club still brings together speed enthusiasts around the world, some taking part in speed attempts and some involved as volunteers at attempts.
Fast FACTS is now a colour and black and white A4 publication. When Robin got involved with the Mach1 club for Thrust SSC I was appointed Chairman and I now write up news items for the newsletter. In addition to reaching this forum Barry I would be pleased to receive first hand information on the Blonde Bombshell cars - firstname.lastname@example.org
will reach me.
I organised a Club meeting at Donington Park some years ago (late 90's)and whilst there the curator was adamant that Tom Wheatcroft had brought the Blue Star mock up. We could not get up to it but it was being preserved on its perch on the bridge.
Now for the 'links' - I worked with Peter Gazey when he joined the Bluebird Electric project for events at Pendine with driver Don Wales. I was team manager for Primetime Land Speed engineering during their record attempts and drove the jet car Vampire once before it was crashed. I was Team Administrator for the only other British LSR vehicle powered by HTP - the motorcycle of Richard Brown of Team Maximum Impulse (241.15 mph was the faster 1/4 mile run at Elvington in 1998).
Please keep intouch Barry as you can correct all of the stories which were 'made up' over the past 20 years or so.
