Seeing live the iconic Sunbeam 350Hp "Blue Bird", with which Sir Malcolm Campbell achieved the land speed record of 150.76mph on 21 July 1925 at Pendine Sands (south Wales coast), was a great emotion. The national motoring museum in Beaulieu has gifted the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed's visitors. The car, lovingly kept by the museum, has undergone the necessary care over the years, including the reconstruction of the engine and, more recently, the replacement of the gearbox (the original one was no longer present) to allow the engine to deliver power without problems. The car is the latest evolution of the model, initially born in 1920. It is equipped with a large Manitou aircraft engine brought to a displacement of 18.3 litres. It is modified with a simple but reliable single-shaft distribution with three valves, one at the intake and two at the exhaust capade to develop 350Hp. Several pilots, such as René Thomas and Kenelm Lee Guinness, competed in speed records driving the car. Still, it was only when the owner and designer of the vehicle, Mr Louis Coatalen 1923, decided to sell it to Malcolm Campbell that the story of this car took another turn. After a few races in 1924, Campbell asked the Boulton & Paul company to create an aerodynamic bodywork, the one you still see today, with a long tail. Thus he obtained several speed records, but the most important one was recorded in 1925 at Pendine Sands, where Campbell scored an average of 150.76 mph, becoming the first car in history to exceed 150 mph. I have to thank my friends and YouTubers @19Bozzy92, @MattyB727 & @NM2255, with whom I collaborated to realise this video. Enjoy! ????

Vedere dal vivo l'iconica Sunbeam 350Hp "Blue Bird" con cui Sir Malcolm Campbell ha ottenuto il record di velocità su terra di 150.76mph il 21 Luglio 1925 a Pendine Sands (costa sud del Galles) è stata una bella emozione. Il museo nazionale del motorismo di Beaulieu ha fatto un grande regalo ai visitatori dell'edizione 2022 del Goodwood Festival of Speed. L'auto, custodita amorevolmente dal museo ha subito negli anni le cure necessarie, tra cui la ricostruzione del motore ed in tempi più recenti anche la sostituzione del cambio (quello originale non era più presente) per permettere al motore di erogare la potenza senza problemi. L'auto è l'ultima evoluzione del modello nato originariamente nel 1920 ed è dotata di un grosso motore da aereo Manitou portato alla cilindrata di 18.3-Litri e modificato con una semplice ma affidabile distribuzione monoalbero a 3 valvole, 1 all'aspirazione e 2 allo scarico capade ci sviluppare 350Hp. Diversi piloti si cimentaro in record di velocità alla guida dell'auto, come René Thomas e Kenelm Lee Guinness ma fu solo quando il proprietario e progettista della vettura, Mr Louis Coatalen nel 1923 si decise a venderla a Malcolm Campbell che la storia di quest'auto presee un'altra piega. Dopo alcune corse nel 1924 Campbell chiese all'azienda Boulton & Paul di creargli una carrozzeria aerodinamica, quella che vedete tutt'ora, con coda lunga. Ottenne così diversi record di velocità ma quello più importante venne registrato appunto Un grande grazie agli amici e YouTubers @19Bozzy92, @MattyB727 & @NM2255 con cui ho collaborato alla realizzazione del video. Buona visione! ????
