Written by the world’s leading expert on the history of the Water Speed Record, this authoritative book describes the evolution of this thrilling but intensely dangerous and under-chronicled area of heroic endeavor, from the earliest records in 1897 as racing motorists turned their attention to the pursuit of marine speed, through to UK and US challengers for the current record of 317mph set by Australian Ken Warby in 1978. The insightful narrative and dramatic photography capture everything about a remarkable tale of man’s daring and courage in tackling the more dangerous of the two big records, from the sheer narcotic of speed, through to the frequent tragedies and the technological advancements.
