Just finished off reading Tonia Bern-Campbells book "my Speed King" about Donald Campbell. Very interesting but alittle girlie for my liking.

One thing which did come out of it was that Sir Alfred Owen of Rubery Owen supported Campbell's exploits on Land as well Water attempting the above records.

This guy must have had pots of money. Threw thousands into BRM during a similar period and also with the Bluebird Projects.

He must have been extremely patriotic or very generous with his wealth and time.


PS - Rubery Owen are still on the go in the North West.
