224.580km/h

 

It’s the world land speed record for a 50cc engine… and still to beat.  The  HuVo Plompen Casal 50cc was build by Piet Plompen and equipped with a Casal Motorcycles 50cc two-stroke atmospheric engine tuned by HuVo/ Hubert-Voskamp Productionracers. J.Hubert drove the torpedo at Lelystad, in the Nederland.  When they where planning to break the record again, for the buzz and the prestige of it, I was assign to design the new speed monster. Because it was the 50cc engine’s record, and not the motorcycle’s, there was freedom to use more than two wheels and the opportunity to move away from the rocket style design.

 

The new concept got a low narrow nose streamline fuselage, a delta shape high wing and two side wheels as inverted rudders.  Its a bad ass combat fighter look to speed over the 230.000km/h ( 143.75mph ) mark
