Shell often used achievements to advertise its products. In anticipation of J.G. Parry Thomas breaking the World Land Speed Record they produced this poster. Parry Thomas actually set a new record of 169.30mph/272.46kph on 27 April 1926, and returned the following day to improve it to 171.02mph/275.23kph at Pendine Sands.
