Video: British engineer rockets to new record

Posted by in categories: engineering, transportation

Britain’s Tom Bagnall has always enjoyed making new things and has always been passionate about engineering.

Which explains why he was keen to be the person to set the Fastest speed in a jet-propelled go-kart after joining a jet-car team as one of the pit crew.

Tom, from Cheadle, Staffordshire, managed a staggering speed of 112.29 mph (180.72 km/h) on CBBC’s Officially Amazing, in York, UK, on 5 September 2017 and now his speed machine has made it into Guinness World Records 2019 as one of the book’s “maker” spreads.
