Fastest car - level 1

Fastest car - level 1

04-03-2014 07:00

A car gets a new speed record. The maximum speed is 270.49 miles per hour (435 kilometres per hour).

People set this record in Florida. The car goes on a runway. The runway is for the space shuttle.

The car is the fastest car in the world, but the record may not be in the Guinness World Records. To be in the book, the car must go fast again.

Difficult words: record (success), maximum (highest), runway (road for planes or space shuttles), space shuttle (plane which goes into space), may (it can and cannot happen; we don’t know).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
