Skipper Hits 250 mph - Malcolm Campbell Bluebird Greetings Card S024


Motorsport greetings card featuring Daytona Beach, Florida on February 5th 1931 as Malcolm Campbell sets a new land speed record of 246.09 mph in his Napier Lion powered Bluebird. On one of his two timed runs in either direction to set the record, Campbell achieved a speed in excess of 250mph for the first time. Campbell took Henry Segrave's 'Golden Arrow' record on that day and was knighted by King George V in recognition of his record breaking achievements. The painting features the Bluebird at speed alongside a low flying Stinson SM2 'Junior' aircraft used by ‘Pathe News’ to record the event, the American high wing monoplane aircraft had a top speed of just 138mph, so it would have soon been overtaken by Bluebird on its record run.

This card is left blank inside for your own message.

Available gift presented with a double mount and clear wrap or double mount and frame.  More info on framing for greetings cards.
