Bloodhound Supersonic Car for Landspeed Record (video)
The Bloodhound supersonic car (SSC) team, led by former land speed record holder Richard Noble, hopes to break through the 1,000mph (1600 km/h) barrier. Education equipment company Promethean has backed the project.
That would see it smash the current land speed record of 763mph, which was set in 1997 by former RAF pilot Andy Green, who will also pilot Bloodhound. The attempt on the record will be made in South Africa next year.
