Manx land speed record broken

'Split Second' at the FIA European Finals, Santa Pod Raceway

'Split second' reaches 225.4mph

The Manx land speed record was broken yesterday (Sat 1).

'Split Second' is the headline attraction at this weekend's Straightliners Jurby Drag Racing event, which enters its final day today, at the Jurby airfield.

It's a flaming, parachute-deploying jet car driven by Julian Webb.

And footage has been uploaded to social media of the car climbing to 225.4mph from a standing start.
