The land speed record that never materialised

Quote:
Around WW II, small automobile manufacturers started focusing on a different kind of record attempt: the quest for the highest speed with the smallest displacement! Records were broken with as little as 500, 350 or even 250cc.

. A name closely associated with these record attempts is that of Giovanni "Johnny" Lurani, whose Moto Guzzi engined Nibbio(first photo) was the first 500cc car to break the 100 mph barrier (... and more than eighty years later, the freshly restored Nibbio won the Coppa d'Oro at this year's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este (second photo)).


Looks like there is a way to do "open wheel" efficiently.
