Synopsis

Beyond Supersonic Bloodhound and the Race for the Land Speed Record by Richard Noble, Andy Green

In July 2015, the Bloodhound team will unveil the car with which they'll launch their assault on the World Land Speed Record. Powered by a jet engine from a Eurofighter Typhoon fighter and a rocket engine developed for the European Space Agency, Bloodhound is the culmination of a ten year beyond the state of the art engineering effort. The 300,000 horsepower, 1000mph car will then be flown to South Africa for the record attempt. Behind the wheel, driver Andy Green will be fighting to steer the revolutionary car across the surface of a dry lake bed at almost unimaginable speeds. To break the record he will have to cover a measured mile in just three seconds. This is a drive into the unknown. Project Director Richard Noble likens the challenge to that of mounting a mission to the moon. If you thought what Felix Baumgartner was doing when he jumped out of balloon was dangerous, wait until you get a load of this...
