    IDW #74: The "Daisy Belle" at the Bonneville Salt Flats

    Topic: The "Daisy Belle" at the Bonneville Salt Flats

    Background: Does the term 'Land Speed Record' ring a bell? Ever since the early 1900s humans have tried to break the speed records with custom build cars. The earliest attempts were raced on the sands of places like Daytona Beach, but when the cars got faster the racers exchanged the soft underground of the beaches for the much better salt flats and dried up deserts. The Bonneville Salt Flats is one of those places where speed records have been broken.

    Usually, the speed monsters were given a name: 'The Green Monster', 'Spirit of America', 'Bluebird' and many more. Traditionally, France and Belgian drivers competed for the record in the early years, but since 1914 it were the British and Americans who competed for the record.

    For this weeks topic, you have to come up with a land speed record breaking machine that goes by the name "Daisy Belle". The rules for this record state that it has to have wheels, but may not ride on a pre-build track. Also, there are different categories (piston engine, turbine engine, electrical car, motorcycle, etc) so you are free to chose any of these categories as long as it is a land speed record racer. Mind also the timeframe for your racer. You are free to design a racemonster from the 1930's or one from 2080, it's up to you.

    I am aware by the way that the ThrustSSC didn't break through the sound barrier at the Bonneville track, but lets just pretend it could've happened there shall we

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw the "Daisy Belle", a Land Speed Record breaking monster!
    2. That's it... now draw!

    Deadline: Sunday August 17

    Great topic, hope I finish this.
    A quick sketch between other stuff today.

    I started with a 34 ford and went a little crazy.

    i was working so hard in the last few hours i had to hand today to get something finished, but i just don't have time to get it polished up to a good enough standard.
    Will share anyway, but understand if it falls below the bar as the render simply hasnt had any time (at all) put into it.

    Remember, the deadline is only 2 days away! So far, none of the images in here are finished enough to make it to poll, so work it some more! I'll try to leave some crits tomorrow, but I'm in need of sleep now

    My final for now,
    Not exactly as finished as I would have liked but I'm going out of town first thing in the morning so I rushed to get something done.

    I hope to be home in time Sunday to post in the voting thread.

    She's basically a retro style lake speedster with some modern styling and engineering twists.
    The large intake where the grille should be feeds a pair of Bell turbine engines (hence her name "Daisy Belle") that would be more at home in a Helicopter.
    Her death defying owner/driver Travis "Crash" Lewis pilots her from the aptly named HOT seat squeezed between the two engines and directly behind the fuel tank.
    When asked about the danger in piloting such a potentially deadly craft Lewis jokingly responded."Well if I ever do push her to far and and crash, at least I'll be the first one at the scene."
    Lewis expects that on her maiden voyage next week she will set a new class record of over 550 MPH.
