Super-Fast Go-Kart – level 3

05-10-2021 15:00

A 26-year-old Englishman earned a Guinness World Record for creating the world’s fastest jetpropelled go-kart. Tom Bagnall took an interest in engineering as a child and has always been into mechanics.

This project took him 12 months to complete, and he admitted there have been quite a few ups and downs, as things were catching fire or blowing up.

However, after reaching 180,71 kilometres per hour, his hard work and passion for speed paid off.

Difficult words: jet (a jet engine – a type of engine used for aeroplanes), propel (push forward), go-kart (a small racing car), be into (when you are very interested by something).
