British entrepreneur aims to crack 400mph barrier
(and raise $1 BILLION for charity in the process)
Ron G Holland is aiming to shatter the motorbike land speed world record, which stands at 360mph, on his 30-foot cigar-shaped V8 super bike at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, USA. He’ll make his attempt sometime in 2010.
The sixty-year-old author and entrepreneur says riding at half the speed of sound holds no fear compared to the prospect of his wife Elisabeth rumbling how much he’s spent on his land speed bid.
