Default Lake Coniston Speed record.

Anyone into their boats might like this. My brother in law sponsors this outfit and they are having a go at the world record. I might take a trip up there myself. Dave said there will probably be a crash on the motorway because drivers are trying to take vids of it while driving

"The boats will be trucked approximately five hours to Coniston"

That's very optimistic.
