The historic 28-foot, three-inch, 10,000-pound Bluebird V departed the “World Center of Racing” back in June to go on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July, the world’s biggest and most diverse celebration of the history of motorsport held on the grounds of the Goodwood House, West Sussex, England.

The historic land speed record was later on display at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu, England before returning back to the United States at Charleston, S.C. on Dec. 12. After a short drive down I-95, Campbell’s Bluebird V, which set a land speed record of 276.82 mph in Daytona Beach back in 1935, was loaded back into the Daytona International Speedway Ticket and Tours Building on Wednesday.
