Bobby Cleveland is officially the world's fastest man on a lawnmower. As achievements go, this is most excellent.

Earlier this year, Welshman Don Wales took Cleveland's old crown when he sat aboard his custom lawnmower codenmaned 'Project Runningblade' (geddit?), engaged 'D', hit the Pendine Sands and reached 87.833 mph. Just 0.2mph quicker and he would have gone back to 1955...

Anyway, Cleveland is not a man to fall on his clippings. He jumped back into the hot seat and set a blistering time of 96mph, which as we said, is most excellent.

This tête à tête is most intriguing, because sooner or later, one or more things will occur; a) they'll hit 100mph ON A LAWNMOWER, b) they'll fit a jet-engine, c) someone will make it road legal and fit it with 20s and a massive sound system. Selecta'!

What other fine everyday machinery would you like to see converted for Manly Pursuits?
