Coffee Car World Record, Powered By Bacon

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!

    What an incredible waste of resources. This is precisely why our planet is doomed to self-immolation.

    How so? An old car that is being fuelled by used coffee granules seems like a pretty decent use of resources – I am sure the old car would have scrapped and the used coffee granules would have been thrown out.

    In any case, it is just a bit of fun and an interesting challenge.

    Right-thinking people everywhere demand to know why it’s not powered by beer!

    Sharing your coffee with a mobile machine seems like no complaints about how weak, bitter, strong or acidic the coffee is!

    Now that’s what you call a “macho” car! Coffee will keep that car running the same way it keeps people running in the morning. That’s a great idea. If this can be improved in the future, it can help reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

    Heh, there’s a car out there powered by whiskey. Well, it doesn’t matter if it’s caffeine or alcohol – the alternative ways of powering a car are quite cool. Seeing automobiles fueled by them in the future would be pretty fascinating.

    I usually commit those mistakes especially when in front of the computer where I don’t really think of anything else but what’s on the screen.

    In other nations, such as Asia, auto sales are well known and used (indirectly) by most people.
