VIDEO: Bolton's "Supercar" is set to break records

Keating Supercars, based in Bolton, are one of our region's business success stories - they make rather fast cars for those who can afford them.

Now there's not much scope for getting your foot down on UK roads.

But next month Keatings' latest car - appropriately named the Bolt - will be heading to Dubai in the hope of breaking the world land speed record.

It is the most significant rise in an overall 13.4% increase in turnover to a club record of £363.2million.

The club's debt has fallen by 10.9% to £389.2million.
