• Bloodhound Diary: It's going to get toasty

    From Internetado@21:1/5 to All on Wed Aug 8 17:36:11 2018
    A British team is developing a car that will be capable of reaching
    1,000mph (1,610km/h). Powered by a rocket bolted to a
    Eurofighter-Typhoon jet engine, the vehicle aims to show its potential
    by going progressively faster, year after year. In mid-2019, Bloodhound
    wants to run above 500mph. In late 2019, the goal is to raise the
    existing world land speed record (763mph; 1,228km/h) to 800mph. And in
    2020, the intention is to exceed 1,000mph. The racing will take place
    on Hakskeen Pan in Northern Cape, South Africa.[...]
