Bloodhound supersonic car set for October trials

The Bloodhound supersonic car will run for the first time on 26 October.
It is going to conduct a series of "slow speed" trials on the runway at Newquay airport in Cornwall.
Engineers want to shake down the vehicle's systems before heading out to South Africa next year to try to break the land speed record.
This stands at 763mph (1,228km/h), and Bloodhound's aim is to raise the mark in two stages - by getting first to 800mph and then to 1,000mph.

Bloodhound diary: All set for UK rocket test

A British team is developing a car that will capable of reaching 1,610km/h. Powered by a rocket bolted to a Eurofighter-Typhoon jet engine, the Bloodhound SSC (SuperSonic Car) vehicle will mount an assault on the land speed record.
