Default Bloodhound SSC has begun!

FINALLY!

Quote:
What is presumably the world's fastest car has been sitting still for a long time, but that might change in, well, a few months. A date has been set for the Bloodhound supersonic land-speed car to be tested for the first time - in October. Or in the words of the team's press release: "Bloodhound is go!"
Testing to consist of breaking the current land speed record.

763mph from 1997 when they broke the sound barrier for the first time.

There have been some attempts at that place in Africa but the conditions haven't been there. They spent a lot of time and money just prepping the surface.

It's just a public test run. Not the attempt for 1000mph.
