World’s Fastest Car – 1,000mph Bloodhound SSC – First Public Runs

Bloodhound SSC (Four wheels, 7.5 tonnes, 135,000 horsepower) made its first public runs at Cornwall Airport Newquay, hitting a peak speed of 210mph.

The Bloodhound Project is an international education initiative focussed around a 1,000mph (1,609 km/h) World Land Speed Record. The primary aim is to inspire the next generation of scientist and engineers by showcasing STEM subjects (science, technology engineering and mathematics) in the most exciting way possible.

Bloodhound SSC is a combination of fast jet, F1 car and spaceship. The Project is followed in over 220 countries and territories.

At full speed, Bloodhound SSC will cover a mile (1.6km) in 3.6 seconds – that’s 4.5 football pitches laid end to end, per second, or 300m in the blink of an eye.

I did not make the video, All rights to their respected owners.

I guess it's just taking it's first runs... but I would love to hear about the technology used on the tires. The tendency would be for it to basically burn the rubber away right before your very eyes!

And then we start talking about trying to steer it, and I imagine it's quickly obvious that such a thing doesn't serve much purpose, on the ground.

LOL. I hope the "driver" was making danger pay, because that was probably the closest that guy has ever been to death. It would be over in less than a heartbeat!
Fight the Good Fight
Make it worth the price we pay!
