Jabbeke is a municipality located in the Belgian province of West Flanders. The municipality comprises the towns of Jabbeke proper, Snellegem, Stalhille, Varsenare and Zerkegem. On 1 January 2006 the municipality had 13,572 inhabitants. The total area is 53.76km², giving a population density of 252 inhabitants per km².Speed recordsIn the 1940s and 1950s it was renowned for the number of speed records set on a measured kilometer of highway. Not just absolute speed records, manufacturers wanted each model's maximum speed measured and certified by the Royal Automobile Club of Belgium. For example, the Healey Elliott with 110.65 mph in 1946, at the time the 'fastest car in the world in series production', the Jaguar XK120 achieved an officially timed 126mph; the "Jabbeke Speed Record" Triumph TR2 car was driven by Ken Richardson; André Pilette set a Belgian record in the 2 litre class in the Veritas RS 206km/h; in 1952 the Rover JET 1 turbine driven by Spen King set the first speed record for gas turbine cars at 151.965mph over the flying kilometre; and the exotic Pegaso Z-102 clocked 250km/h to make it the 'fastest production car in the world'.
