The goal of the British steam car challenge is to create the world’s fastest car — using alternative fuels. Their aim is to reach 150 mph on British soil and then 200 mph at the Bonneville salt flats in Utah. Four LPG-powered boilers will feed the turbine engine with steam pressure, and the car will operate at total loss, consuming and expending the entire volume of water it carries for each run. If you want to contribute to this historic feat, you can support it for as little as £1 at the British Steam Car Appeal website. Britain needs YOU! [GT]
