A host of unconventional vehicles are preparing to break their own land-speed records, including the world's fastest shed at Pendine Sands in Carmarthenshire.

There will be a bid for drivers and riders to reach the high speeds, as well as one by another driver, to bag a record in a vehicle that cost less than 1,000 pounds to build.

Neil Gilfillan tests the Mission 100 streamliner vehicle at Elvington Airfield in Yorkshire, the UK, Sept 21, 2019. The Mission 100 project has the aim of designing and building of a record-breaking 'streamliner' on the tightest of budgets. It has a 'tiny' 100cc engine and seeks to set various British speed records with minimal investment, using many recycled parts and a lot of technical know-how and skills contributed for free.

It took Yorkshire-based Mission 100 team three years to build their "streamliner" vehicle.

It is also using of recycled parts and engineering skills to make the speed bids.
