Carro Bloodhound inicia testes de alta velocidade

July 11, 2019 - O carro supersónico Bloodhound LSR vai iniciar uma série de testes
de alta velocidade na África do Sul em preparação para uma tentativa
de bater o recorde do mundo de velocidade em terra.

The UK-led venture will use the Bloodhound SSC car rescued from administration by Yorkshire-based businessman Ian Warhurst in December 2018.

Bloodhound LSR will make its high-speed runs at Hakskeen Pan in South Africa in October 2019, aiming to achieve speeds of up to 500mph (800km/h). This will allow the team to test many aspects of the car and operational procedures in advance of a planned world land speed record attempt in late 2020.

The tests will be done using the car’s Rolls-Royce EJ200 jet engine, which was successfully used in low speed trials at Newquay Airport in the UK in 2017.
