On 26th October just a few days ago Bloodhound SSC team experienced it’s biggest milestone to date in the development of the world’s first 1000 mph car. At 1pm the Bristol built supersonic car carried out it’s first public tests on the runway at Newquay airport taking the car to 200 mph driven by RAF Wing Commander Andy Green. All the data taken from the test will be processed and analysed to ensure car is record ready for the attempt in 2019 on a special track in Northern Cape, South Africa.

Hope you have a great month
All the best
