Three snippets to wrap up the morning with. News in from Luderitz – Antoine Albeau has set a new speed record within just two days of arriving at the purpose built speed trench. At 49.41 knots he beat his own record set in 2008 of 49.09 knots, now he is chasing hard for that 50 knot barrier. Check out the full report here.

One man who will be reading on intently will be Steve Thorp who has in the past reached GPS spikes of 54 knots, all though not official confirmed by enough satellite readings it still shows a massive speed and he will be keen to have another crack at it again soon no doubt.
