"There's something gloriously English, ie batty, about rebuilding Donald Campbell's record-breaking speedboat Bluebird K7 which broke up at 300mph and killed him on Coniston Water 34 years ago. His daughter, Gina, has been given permission to hold speed trials up to 100mph.
Surely the only point of rebuilding Bluebird is to fulfil Campbell's dream or keep it as a stationary exhibit. Piddling about Coniston at 100mph is neither here nor there. There's no shortage of crackpots who'd like to suceed where brave Donald sadly failed."
