Bloodhound Desert Comms Test

Bloodhound team that will attempt to break the world land speed record of 1000 MPH (1,609km/h), is testing the cars comms in South Africa.   Watch the video…

An L39 jet aircraft flew multiple passes down Bloodhound’s specially prepared South African desert track, synchronised with the new All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupé driven by Project Director Richard Noble and a Jaguar XF saloon, at closing speeds of up to 650mph (1,046km/h).

The cars carried the same equipment that will stream data, voice and imagery live from the Bloodhound Supersonic Car during test runs and record attempts in September this year and again in 2016.
