Meet a trio of land speed record legends

An evening with land speed legends Wing Commander Andy Green, Richard Noble OBE and Don Wales.

Ever fancied meeting the fastest men on earth? Auto Express�s sister magazine Octane is holding a special evening where a trio of the UK's land speed record breakers � Wing Commander Andy Green, Richard Noble OBE and Don Wales � will talk exclusively with David Tremayne, well-known journalist and acknowledged expert on land speed records.

Noble famously achieved a world land speed record of 633.468mph in 1983 driving Thrust2 and managed the ThrustSSC programme which saw Wing Commander Green set a supersonic record of 763.035mph.

Noble and Green are now working on the Bloodhound SSC project with the aim of pushing the world land speed record to over 1,000mph. The car is expected to be completed during 2011.

Don Wales, holder of the UK Land Speed Record for an electric car (139mph), announced recently that in the early spring of 2011 he will attempt to break his own electric record and the outright record set by his grandfather, Sir Malcolm Campbell, in 1925. He also has plans to attempt a new world land speed record for a battery car and has his sights set on 400mph. 

He also holds the world record for a steam powered car (148mph) as a member of Charles Burnett III's British Steam car team at Edwards Airforce base in August 2009.

The event will take place on 17 March at the famous Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall. The evening costs �125 per person and includes a three-course meal with wine and a signed photograph as a memento.
