Bloodhound Super-Sonic Car aims for land speed record

October 26, 2017 -- A British team developing a car capable of reaching 1,000mph (1,600km/h) aims to make its first test run of 200mph at Newquay Airport in Cornwall. The British-engineered supersonic car will attempt to break the 1,000mph barrier and set a new land speed record on a dried-up lake bed in South Africa’s Northern Cape province next year.

The Bloodhound SCC project - to develop a car capable of reaching 1,000mph - was proposed in 2006 by Andy Green and Richard Noble.

Richard Noble reached 633mph (1,019km/h) in 1983 in the Nevada desert driving Thrust 2, and went on to lead the project building Thrust SCC which in 1997 reached 763mph (1,228km/h) with Andy Green as the driver. This is the current world land speed record.
