in the 350bp Sunbeam Bluebird at Pendine Sands 21st July 1925 at a speed of 150.87mph beating his 1924 record of 146.16mph
350HP Sunbeam was built in 1920 and entered several Brooklands races, braking short distance records, driven by the famous Kenelm Lee Guinness. Malcolm Campbell persuaded the Sunbeam designer and racing team manager Louis Coatalen to let him drive the car on Saltburn Sands, and this wetted his appetite for record breaking and after much persuasion he bought the car in 1923. The car was then painted his favourite shade of blue and bore the name “Bluebird”, as several racers have since 1912.
