I just stumbled across an article about Jessi Combs, who — at an average speed of 406 miles per hour — is currently the fastest woman on four wheels.  She’s now gearing up in a converted F-104 Lockheed Starfighter to go for the three-wheeled world speed record at Bonneville Salt Flats, breaking the sound barrier in the process, and possibly liquefying the desert floor with the pressure wave of her supersonic passage.


You can read the article here and all the details of the record attempt here.
