JCB Dieselmax Project - The World's Fastest Diesel engine


The land speed record was broken in the summer of 2006 at the Bonneville Salt Flats. The 2.7 tonne vehicle was propelled to a speed of 350 mph by twin rail injection diesel engines, producing 750bhp each. The record still stands, years on. The talk will be delivered by JCB's Product Engineering Manager, David Hoyle.


Do not underestimate the power of networking, do your research, talk to people who work in your sector of interest. Many of the local institutions and companies will have representatives in attendance, get talking to your future boss today.

Additional Details

  • The event is completely free, no DoC needed
  • Free tea, coffee and biscuits
  • Keep an eye out for a list of confirmed attendees and do your research as this is the best way to get a placement and maybe more.
