Reality Hacking No. 242, How Fast Does a Rental Car Go? Verneuk Pan, South Africa, November 2006
This work is dedicated to Johan Jacobs who was going to be the fastest man on earth. (Instead he was killed in a 500km/h crash). The South African land speed record holder and former fighter pilot died on June 27th 2006 at Verneuk Pan, when his dragster powered by a jet engine went out of control and flipped during a practice run for an attempt to break the world land speed record for a mile from a standing start.
