Was it just me or did anyone else feel uncomfortable when that guy was dangling that camera near the intake?
Those little engines don't suck very hard at low RPM. We had similar comments about our ear defenders when we were running our engines but, honestly, there's more going on on a windy day!

Hehe, fair play, I have seen camera straps come loose before though.

For anyone wondering what has happened to the Dartagnan record effort of late, news directly from Daniel Dehaemers on his facebook page is that he has been 'diagnosed with lung cancer metastized to the liver'.

Let's hope he pulls through and still gets his boat on the water.

Sadly, 'pulling through' isn't something folk do from that position.

I don't know Daniel at all, but this is desperately sad news.

A reminder to us all, perhaps, that we take good health for granted at our peril.

I had a look at his Facebollocks page to see if there was any more news and apparently 23 people like the fact that he has terminal cancer.
As a matter of fact, after a medical examination, I have been diagnosed with a lung cancer metastized to the liver.
Dalton Tolliver, Jean-louis Seront, Gina Di Bari and 23 others like this.

Which neatly summarises the sheer pointlessness of Facebollocks in my view :roll:

Details are very sketchy, but Guy Martin is currently at Bonneville with Triumph chasing the 400mph record again, and apparently got a run in yesterday.
