It's a land snake. Not an asp.

Another hint:

It rhymes with something you activate in your car when it is raining. To keep the water off your windscreen.

World speed records in various forms of transport are regularly broken. However, there's one that hasn't been exceeded since 1978!

What speed record is that? Bonus points for who/where/speed.

There is an even older speed record that has stood since 1967 and current contenders don't even come close to matching it. What is it?

Can I hazard a guess that it's something to do with motorcycles?
