My brother, Martin, is working hard right now to prepare to set a new Guinness world record for the fastest land speed record for a car powered by coffee. Crazy, yes, awesome, definitely. I am so proud of him, my nephews, and the rest of the team. What’s better is that the car looks like something from Back To The Future.
They are going to have a first test attempt on the 10th August 2011 at Elvington Race Track near York, and the main record attempt will be on the 14th September 2011.
Be sure to check their website at http://coffeecar.org/ and follow them on Twitter; they are posting videos about the technology and prep going into smashing this record. You can also donate to help them nail the record.
Here is a video introducing the car, starring the considerably-less-handsome-considerably-more-bearded brother in question.

I am so proud of all of them, so be sure to follow them and track this awesome record attempt!
