Guy Martin has just broken another land-speed record

Guy Martin’s latest land-speed record saw him hit 103.6mph in a rather surprising vehicle

EX-TT racer and TV personality Guy Martin has set a new land-speed record over the weekend, after hitting 103.6mph while driving a 1,000hp, 2,500Nm JCB Dieselmax tractor for a Channel 4 documentary.

The post shared on Facebook on Friday reads: ‘A sneak peek of what's to come in our documentary with Guy Martin and Channel 4 later this year. Britain's fastest tractor, achieving a record 103.6mph. #JCBWFT’

The JCB Fastrac Guy drove was modified but still resembles a tractor – unlike the previous record held by Top Gear with a machine that looked more dragster then tractor!

The engine was uprated with common-rail injection, a different crankshaft, six-speed gearbox and high-tech electric supercharger.
