In 1992 the Britten V1000 won the Dutch round of the Battle of The Twins, and in 1994 the Daytona round. In between those victories, the V1000 smashed four motorcycle world speed records: the standing start quarter mile, mile and kilometre, and the flying mile at 302kph. Tragically, just as the motorsport world realised there was a giant-killer on the scene, John Britten succumbed to cancer. He died in 1995
