'The Fun Begins At 450 m.p.h.' Don Campbell Shoots At Dad's Record By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-Why shouli m wealthy businessman with pretty wife--and o great joy ii living--want to risk his life try ing to drive a car more than ' miles an hour? "You can't logically explain why you feel something has to be done, and you are the one wh must do i(--at least I can't," Donald Campbell. 'This is something you tithe feel, or you don't feel." He idolized his father, thg Sir Malcolm Campbell, and watched as his father in his las race against time in 1935 roare across the Bonneville Salt Rat: in Utah at 301 miles an hour. "That was the ninth time hi broke the land record," recallec Donald. "No other man broke i more than three times." Only 14 Then Donald, now 39, was only 1' when he thrilled to his father's feat "Little did I think I'd be back 25 years later trying for a recorc myself," he said. Donald, no stranger to speed has broken the water speed rec ord six times and hold." the pres ent record of 260.35 mil?s an hour It was five and a half year ago t h a t he decided to bring th land speed record back into the Campbell clan. His target is the 396.196 m.p.h. mark set at Bonne ville in 1047 by the late John Cobb. The elder Campbell died in bed *t 6,1. Cobb, his rival, died in 195: In a speed boat accident. Donald's ride to glory or dcfca at Bonneville this September wil be mads in a 30-foot gas-turbini car, called 'Bluebird," the same name borne by a long string o Campbell speed cars and boats since 1911. $4 Million Venture It Is a four - million - dollar venture.

The car Is designed to go 500 m.p.h. but anything over 400 m.p.h. will set a mark. "The strain on tha tires will be about 100 times greater at 475 m.p.h. than st 400 m.p.h.," he said. "But I figure Ihe fun really' starts at about 450 m.p.h." Donald, a slender, dark-haired. friendly man with the handshake o! a blacksmith, is mildly annoyed at people who class speed record attempts with ordinary car racing "Auto racing ts colorful and ro- mantic," he observed. "But reo- ord breaking is an adventure into the unknown. It Is a cold-blooded lonely game. There Is a carefully planned schedule of tests to fol- iow. ]t calls for great accuracy and hellish menial discipline." Campbell brushes aside the danger- "I never take an unnecessary risk-to do so Is foolhardy,' 1 he said. He and his wife. Bslgian singer Tonia Bern, are quietly hopeful of victory. As cohokler of botk the land and water speed crowns, Donald could then look forward to the same honor that capped h i j father's career--knighthood.
