In 1925 Malcolm Campbell took an aero-engined Sunbeam to over 150mph at Pendine Sands. On acquiring the car in 1923 he had painted it in new colours and called it Bluebird (already the fourth version). After an extensive engine restoration by current custodians, The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Malcolm Campbell's grandson, Don Wales, piloted the car back at Pendine, exactly 90 years, to the day, after the original runs.
