We've been very excitedly following the progress of the Bluebird Land speed record attempt for an electric car.
Don Wales set the current British record 10 years ago at 137mph and is aiming to take that up to 150mph this weekend at Pendine Sands in Carmarthenshire in Wales. His son will also take to the sands and try to break the records for the 1/4 mile and 500 metre speed records and he's only 19 years old!
An annual task undertaken by the Greenpower Steering Group at this time of year is the reviewing of the season's regulations and making any amendments to the following year's regulations in light of any incidents or potential incidents that have been noted. We also take into account questions received throughout the year to make sure the regulations are as comprehensive as possible, whilst remaining easy to understand. Stability in regulations is an important factor so we try to make as few changes as possible each year, and to now give advance notice of any major changes.
Emma Bowyer has joined the events team at Greenpower Ltd for her summer holidays from the University of Nottingham where she's studying for a Mechanical Engineering Degree.
Emma has been involved with Greenpower since she was 11 and raced with St Swithun's School. Since then she has also helped out as a marshall and this summer you'll hear her at many of our events as the commentator. She's very friendly and super keen to talk to all the teams and get you all talking over the microphone at events so don't be shy!
