Olympic cycling gold medallist Jason Queally plans to attempt to break the HPV land speed record in September.
Queallys vehicle a fully-faired recumbent is being designed by Chris Field of Hotta. Quelly rode a Hotta bike in Sydney. The HPV will be built by Reynard, which builds cars for the Formula 1 team, British American Racing.
American Sam Whittingham holds the existing record of 72.24mph.
Queallys attempt will be named the Blueyonder Challenge, after its sponsor, and will cost a cool quarter of a million quid.
