Do you want to drive a vehicle with 44 inch tires at 150 mph? I can’t really say I do. Somebody brave’s been doing it though, because the JCB Fastrac Two is officially the world’s fastest tractor with a two-way average speed of 135 mph/217 kmh.
The normal Fastrac’s surprisingly well suited for performance driving thanks to its 50/50 weight distribution and four wheel disc brakes. The record runner has been lightened down to a featherweight 11,000 lbs and it’s even got a drag parachute to rein it in. Long live PR efforts like this!
Brave man this.
