While trying to set a speed record, one of the leading "Destroyers of Legends" was killedBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/article/while-trying-to-set-a-speed-record-one-of-the-leading-destroyers-of-legends-was-killed.html
TV presenter and racer Jessie Combs, the holder of the title of the fastest woman on Earth, died on August 27 while trying to set another speed record in a jet-powered car.
Jessie planned to reach a speed of 1000 km / h, but her equipment could not withstand the load and a crash occurred.
The tragic case occurred in Oregon, USA, in the Alvord desert. The dried-up lake, located in the middle of the desert, has long been favored by fans of speed records. Earlier, in October 2013, Combs achieved an incredible 640.5 km/h on this track behind the wheel of a jet-powered Eagle Supersonic Speed Challenger. Later, the rider managed to reach the mark of 772 km / h, but this record remained unconfirmed.
On August 27, 39-year-old Jessie Combs planned to set a new record and accelerate her device to 1000 km/h. According to preliminary information, the cause of the crash was a technical malfunction that destroyed the equipment at high speed. P
Jessie Combs is said to have "left this earth moving faster than any other woman in history" and that's actually the case.
Very few people here know about Jesse's sporting achievements. For us, she is, first of all, one of the invited hosts of the television program "Destroyers of Legends".
In the USA, Combs hosted the programs "Extreme 4×4" and "All Girls Garage", and in addition she was known as a record-breaking racer and an expert in the field of sports cars.
Two days before her death, Jessie Combs posted a photo on her Twitter showing one of the stages of preparing the jet car for the race.
Unfortunately, despite all precautions, fatal accidents are not uncommon in motor sports nowadays.
