Planning to set out to break records? If so, luxury and comfort are probably way down on your list of priorities. Performance is what counts and you need every ounce of that you can find with every other aspect of design taking second place. That describes the original Record! Designed and built to break records, she was the largest creation of that master of high-speed design, Fabio Buzzi. The prototype set out to attack a number of world records and I spent a happy season as her navigator. First there was the Round Italy record from Venice to Monte Carlo, then came Monte Carlo to London, a 2,300-mile epic, and finally we smashed the Round Britain record at an amazing average of 44 knots.
