    Electric car breaks world record

    Drayson Racing Technologies cracks the 200mph barrier in Yorkshire

    Lord Drayson, chief executive of Drayson Racing Technologies, former Minister of Science and racing driver, took the wheel of the 850bhp, quad-motor powered electric prototype, gunned it down the RAF Elvington Airfield in Yorkshire as the sun was setting, and hit a new top speed of 204.185mph (an average of two runs). That smashes the previous record by a whopping 29.2mph, set way back in 1974 at a speed of 175mph by Battery Box Electric in America.
