Video: Brits gun for the Bonneville Salt Flats fastest lawn mower record in the world

81 mph…that the world speed record for a lawn mower set at Bonneville Salt Flats in 2007. (watch the video above)

But now a British team want to break that record and go over 100 mph.

"I saw a
video of American, Bob Cleveland on YouTube setting the record for
lawnmowers at an impressive 80.792mph on Bonneville Salt Flats," said
Stephen Vokins who is behind the British effort. "I was greatly impressed, but felt with the right team, 100mph
should be possible."

But here's the catch. According to the Guinness World of Records in order to qualify the lawn mower must really be a lawn mower built by a recognized lawn mower manufacturer using pretty much stock parts.
