Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
The first Land Speed Record was set in late 1898 by the Comte de la Chasseloup-Laubat driving a Jeantaud, but it stood for just four short weeks as Belgian engineer Camille Jenatzy raised the mark from 63.158 km/h to 66.667 km/h in this extremely workmanlike device. Later the same day the advantage was back with the French nobleman at 70.312 km/h and then ten days later Jenatzy returned with a larger motor on his electric cart to stop the clocks at 80.357 km/h! Thatís a serious percentage increase in 6 weeks. Jenatzyís first record breaker looked like little more than a pair of packing cases on a cart chassis with a seat on top, streamlining a thing of the future. The kit features very cleanly cast resin parts from the main structure, the seat and the motorbox that was slung underneath. The suspension parts (literally cart springs), large wheels, drive chains and other small parts are white metal and there are rubber O-rings for the tyres. The drive chains may have been better realised as etched parts, but otherwise everything looks good on the hand built example. An extremely important piece of motor sport history.
