Richard Noble

Former Land Speed Record Holder

Holder of the land speed record between 1983 and 1997 with Thrust2, Scottish entrepreneur Richard Noble OBE is a man obsessed with speed. A wonderful motivational speaker, Richard is among an elite club of thrill seekers to have travelled over 600mph on land in a vehicle, giving audience members a wonderful insight into the sharp end of land speed record attempts. Born in Edinburgh and educated at Winchester College, Richard became a qualified pilot and moved into aircraft production with Cessna. Breaking the company’s production hiatus with his ARV Super2, Andy had created an all-British light aircraft using an all-new British engine, The Hewland AE75.

During talks as a motivational speaker, Richard describes to guests how teamwork and leadership were crucial to the success of his record attempts, even though they had just 12% of the budget of their rivals. With each presentation written specifically to his client, Richard can adapt his content for ultimate relevance and suitability to his audience, making him a highly desirable after dinner speaker.

Involved in over 550 appearances within the last 25 years, clients can be assured that Richard will act with consummate professionalism and deliver a polished performance for all listeners. Putting guests in the driving seat, Richard strives to give everyone the experience of taming a rocket powered car travelling faster than the speed of sound.
