Sunbeam 1000HP On 29th March 1927, Major Henry Segrave broke the world land speed record, recording an average speed of 203.79mph. during the return run, a gust of wind caused the car to swerve into the line of flag posts marking the course. after crossing the line, Segrave closed the throttles but the car failed to slow. Running out of course, he applied the brakes, but they were of no use because the shoes had melted. To slow the car, Segrave drove into the water's edge. the engines kept running and he was able to drive out! Photographed at Beaulieu Motor Museum in Hampshire. UK.
