Bloodhound's initial speed tests took place on 26 October
27 October, 2017, 19:15
Bloodhound SSC goes through its paces at Newquay airport, in Newquay southwest England, Thursday Oct. 26, 2017. Achieving that goal will require more space than is possible on a runway in the United Kingdom, but today's shakedown test saw RAF Wing Commander Andy Green-the current Land Speed Record holder-hit 210mph in just eight seconds.
More than 3,000 spectators witnessed the exercise, which was used to prove the vehicle's steering, brakes, suspension, data systems and other functions.
Bloodhound SSC, a British team that's planning on using a jet engine strapped to wheels to travel at 1,000mph, just hit an important milestone.
It is fitted with an EJ200 jet engine, sourced from a Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft.
Then, in 2020, the Bloodhound crew will add extra rocket motors for an attempt to set a 1000mph land speed record - the project's ultimate objective.
The vehicle will attempt the break the land speed record in South Africa in 2019.
If this second test is successful, backers hope to top 800mph in 2019 at Hakskeen Pan, beating Green's previous mark (set 20 years earlier, on 15 October 1997, in Thrust SSC) of 763.065mph.
Bloodhound SSC is created to reach 1,000mph in a bid to set a record that can not be beaten by existing technology.
Bloodhound SSC has been built over nine years by a team of Bristol-based engineers from aeronautical and automotive backgrounds.
The current world land speed record is held by Thrust SSC, a United Kingdom team led by Bloodhound's project director Richard Noble and driven by Andy Green.
"There is development work still to do, of course, but straight out of the box it feels responsive, stable and, above all, tremendously fast. It's also notable for being the longest period that we've run the auto for, at around 21.5 minutes-and remember it's created to run for just two minutes at a time in the desert". I can not wait to go faster!
The Bloodhound SSC, Britain's 1000mph world land speed record challenger, has successfully been driven to more than 200mph at Newquay Airport as the initial part of its first phase of testing.
