Zenith Temple-JAP 1930 World Record Breaker
Built in 1926, this is the 1930 configuration of the machine which Joe Wright took the world record on at Cork, Ireland in 1930. The OEC had had a serious malfunction during practice and could not be repaired during the limited window of opportunity, so Joe's personal machine was used. The record was attributed to OEC, and this resulted in a huge scandal.
