World's fastest diesel smashes record

Andy Green has broken the world record for speed in a diesel car by more than 100 miles per hour at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah on Wednesday. Green drove Britain-based JCB's JCB Dieselmax, a computer-designed car with an engine normally used in backhoe loaders. After reaching a speed of 328mph on Tuesday, he completed the test by averaging 350mph over two runs on Wednesday. The old record, set in 1973, was 236mph.
