  • Record-breaking Napier Railton makes historic run at Farnborough

    News | 20 Jul 2004 00:00

    <p>One of the world's most famous aero engines - the 24-litre W12 Napier Lion of the 1920s and 1930s - will be a star of Farnborough 2004, but this time powering a racing car, rather than an aircraft. </p> <p>The most powerful engine of its day, the Napier Lion will be seen - and memorably heard - at the start of each afternoon's air display as it powers the historic 1933 Napier-Railton racing and record-breaking car along the Farnborough runway. </p> <p>Built and raced at Brooklands, the motor racing circuit located 10 miles (16km) east of Farnborough, just off the A3 towards London, the Napier Railton was commissioned by British racing driver John Cobb. </p> <p>Emotional</p> <p>It's no exaggeration to say that the car is the very embodiment of the engineering and emotional links between aviation and motoring.</p> <p>In Cobb's hands the car set and still holds the outright lap record on the banked Brooklands circuit in Surrey - at 143.44mph - and twice gained the world 24h endurahttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Record-breaking-Napier-Railton-makes-historic-run-at-Farnborough-184952/
