James plans record run

CALIFORNIA // Jesse James, the man who rose to fame as the star of Monster Garage TV series on the Discovery Channel, hopes to break the land speed record for hydrogen-powered vehicles. The attempt will later be broadcast on Jesse James is a Dead Man, his television series. The attempt is planned for later this month in California, when James, married to Sandra Bullock who is featured in today's M magazine, will use a 1960s Streamliner car, which ran at over 380 kph at Bonneville in its heyday but will be converted to hydrogen power. The current hydrogen-powered record was set by the Buckeye Bullet 2, which went more than 460 kph last August.
