BLOODHOUND arrived in her new home early Thursday evening.
The team head down there on Monday to start the trials.
Big thanks to Cornwall Airport Newquay Arthur Spriggs and the hundreds of sponsors who helped us get here!

BLOODHOUND clears its throat.
This is the air start cart spooling up and dry cranking the EJ200 jet engine. It's a dress rehearsal for a tie down test.

Today, 29 September 2017 the BLOODHOUND team achieved a huge engineering milestone. They successfully started up the state-of-the-art EJ200 jet engine which had been installed in the car and took it to max reheat (aka afterburner). Driver Andy Green sat in the cockpit throttling the jet engine with his right foot. The car was tied down to a secure anchor point on the southern side of Cornwall Airport Newquay.
