My brother, Martin, is working hard right now to prepare to set a new Guinness world record for the fastest land speed record for a car powered by coffee. Crazy, yes, awesome, *definitely*. I am so proud of him, my nephews, and the rest of the team. What’s better is that the car looks like something from *Back To The Future*.
They are going to have a first test attempt on the *10th August 2011* at Elvington Race Track near York, and the main record attempt will be on the *14th September 2011*.
Be sure to check their website at [https://coffeecar.org/](https://coffeecar.org/) and [follow them on Twitter](https://twitter.com/#!/thecoffeecar); they are posting videos about the technology and prep going into smashing this record. You can also [donate](https://coffeecar.org/donate) to help them nail the record.
Here is a video introducing the car, starring the considerably-less-handsome-considerably-more-bearded brother in question.

I am so proud of all of them, so be sure to follow them and track this awesome record attempt!
