In 1999 Richard Brown rode his rocket powered Gillette Mach 3 Challenger, which he also designed and built, on the Bonneville Salt Flats to an officially timed one way speed of 332.887mph peaking at 365mph. Unable to make a return run to secure the outright record due to technical issues relating to the poor course conditions Richard at least had the satisfaction of knowing that he had exceeded the highest speed previously seen for a two wheeled vehicle and, in fact, it was to be another seven years before anyone went faster still.
Using the experience gained from the Gillette Mach 3 Challenger Richard has now engineered another thrust powered bike called Jet Reaction which has been able to run as both a two or three wheeler for testing in the UK prior to it’s attempt on the Outright World Two Wheel land speed record, (currently 376.363mph) this innovative vehicle is powered by a highly modified gas turbine with bespoke afterburner.
