JCB Fastrac Two - the world’s fastest tractor features our wheels and chassis:

JCB’s Fastrac has stormed into the record books after being crowned the world’s fastest tractor with a speed of 135.191 mph.

The Fastrac - designed and built by a team of young engineers in Staffordshire - secured the title at Elvington Airfield in York with motorbike racer and lorry mechanic Guy Martin at the wheel.  The feat was officially ratified by Guinness World Records who presented the company with a special framed certificate minutes after the achievement.

Following two successful runs, the JCB Fastrac broke the world record for a tractor, achieving a peak speed of an incredible 153.771mph and an average of 135.191mph.

With the previous record of 103.6mph having been set by JCB’s Fastrac One in June 2019, the project team embarked on an ambitious plan to break the record again with Fastrac Two – which was 10% lighter and even more streamlined than its predecessor.

Having been involved in the design of the wheels and chassis for the first world record, GKN Wheels & Structures was again invited to work with JCB’s team of young engineers to develop and manufacture wheels and a lightweight chassis that were capable of meeting the additional challenges of Fastrac Two.
