The British Neil Campbell has achieved the world speed record reaching a speed of 280 km / h in the airfield of Elvington (Yorkshire).
Neil Campbell has set the new world speed record on a bike specially designed for the occasion and equipped with a parachute and with the help of a large displacement sports car, a Porsche Cayenne which put him at a speed of 177 km / hour to later release and roll without help.

The Briton pulverized the old Fred Rompelberg brand established at 1995 in Utah (United States) that was at 268 km / h. In this same place, Campbell plans to improve himself in the future. Together with his team, he aspires to reach 350 kilometers per hour next year.
