Fastrac Two was a development of the original record-setting Fastrac created by a team from heavy plant firm JCB. Both are based on standard, commercially available JCB tractor but the latest model is 10 per cent lighter and more streamlined than the original model, allowing it to extend the record speed significantly.
JCB chairman Lord Bamford praised the “amazing achievement” of the engineers who helped create the record-breaking tractor.
He said: “When we reached 103.6mph with the Fastrac in the summer, I was convinced we could go even faster, and the JCB team has risen to the challenge by setting this new record. It’s an amazing achievement delivered by a young and enthusiastic engineering team. Everyone involved should be very proud of the part they have played in showing off British engineering at its very best.”
