This is a BTM Classic Talk

Malcolm Campbell, Henry Segrave, Kaye Don and John Cobb. These four illustrious racing-drivers, synonymous with Brooklands, are also central to the story of the World Water Speed Record. Tonight, their exploits form part of a multimedia presentation with speed at its heart, from author and publisher Nigel Macknight.

Nigel is leading the ‘Quicksilver’ team, which is building a turbofan-propelled, 400-mph superboat to return the record to Britain. Furthermore, he’ll be the boat’s driver. He is here to describe and illustrate the background to the challenge and provide an update on the latest progress made.

He’ll also have some tales from his writing career in showbusiness, motorsport, aviation and space exploration, on what promises to be a unique and inspiring evening.
