OK - what aircraft (a homebuilt, powered by a Rotax 60 hp 582) set up a world speed record at 214mph in 1992.

You have it ! A very interesting vid on the tube with an explanation of the build and especially the wing root fairings (even I could understand it)

The Polen Special 2 was for many years the fastest 4 cylinder aircraft until a Brazilian team of students came up with the Anequim to take the title and many records.

Yup...

If you can find a copy, I recommend "Two Men in a Flying Machine" Dr John Morris's account of how he and Bruce Harrison flew a Monopause from Aus to the UK in the early 1960s.
