We’re proud to be associated with each and every one of our sponsors who have helped us get this far. We hope you too might share the dream (and the glory) of bringing the motorcycle Land Speed Record back to Britain.
SRS Rail Services – About 30 years ago the Chief Civil Engineer of the Swedish Railways had a simple, but brilliant idea. He initiated the design of a lorry which could travel most of the way on the road, mount the track at a level crossing and complete its journey by rail. Thus the SRS road rail lorry was born, and the idea was soon extended to include a comprehensive range of mounted equipments enabling these vehicles to be used for a multiplicity of tasks. The road rail lorry added a new dimension to railway infrastructure engineering. SRS is Worldwide Road Rail Hire at it’s best.
