Jet-powered shopping trolley and motorised toilet take to the track




A toilet, a shopping trolley and a garden shed raced at high speed showcasing the eccentric side of motor sports.
The toilet, which a team of young students had rigged out with wheels and an old motorcycle engine, reached just over 70 mph, breaking Britain's speed limit for cars.
The shopping trolley, mounted on go-cart wheels, did 91.55 mph, with its maker, 59-year-old engineer Matt McKeown, clinging on as he straddled its jet engine.
Fastest of all was the shed, which topped 100 mph at the time trials on the runway at an airfield in Elvington, North Yorkshire, this weekend.
Straightliners, the motor sports company that organised the event, said all three had set new world records.
