From 1926 until 1927, J.G.Parry Thomas held the world land speed record in his car 'Babs'.

Tragically he died at Pendine, Carmarthenshire in 1927, trying to regain the record.

See the remains of the car and the working replica built of it by Owen Wyn Owen in the 1970s and relive the exciting story.
