Sir Malcolm Campbell’s Sunbeam fired up for the first time in 50 years

Sir Malcolm Campbell’s record breaking 350hp Sunbeam was fired up on WednesdayJanuary 29, the first time it has been heard in public in over 50 years.

The Sunbeam 350hp, also known as Bluebird, famously pushed the land speed world record to over 150mph.

The vehicle was driven by Sir Malcolm Campbell, the father of Donald Campbell - who tragically died on Coniston Water while attempting to break the water speed record in 1967.

The Campbells were well known daredevils at the time, having amassed several successful world record attempts between them - many of which took place in Cumbria.

A crowd gathered outside the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu, Hampshire, to hear the recently rebuilt engine once more.
