Blue Bird V, Bluebird CN7 and Blue Bird Land Speed Record Breakers on display
Sir Malcolm Campbell’s Blue Bird V Land Speed Record Breaker joins 2 Blue Bird record breakers on display at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu, after their showcasing at 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The Daytona Beach, Florida Blue Bird V record was 276.82 mph in February 1935. That September he went into record books as the 1st person to exceed 300 mph at 301.129 mph at Bonneville salt flats, Utah.
Beaulieu Commercial Director, Stephen Munn, said, “Beaulieu has been home to Donald Campbell’s Bluebird CN7 since the 1960s, so it is wonderful to finally see his father’s most famous Land Speed Record Breaker, the Blue Bird V, displayed alongside it in the museum. To see these legendary vehicles together is an unforgettable experience, and we hope that by having them on display, they will inspire a whole new young generation and reignite the interest in land speed record breaking.”
