Last night (Sept 12th) Ken Talbot rode the ARION4, breaking the human powered land speed record at an astonishing 51.58mph (83.02kph). Ken is now officially the fastest human in history riding an arm-powered vehicle!

This morning, Karen Darke surpassed her previous world record, reaching 46.05 mph (74.11kph) becoming the second fastest arm-powered human ever.

The University of Liverpool team is so proud of everything both riders have achieved, their hard work, their dedication and passion which has led to these incredible records.
