Bloodhound's record attempt in 2019

Plans to run BLOODHOUND SSC for the first time on its dry lake bed race track at Hakskeen Pan, Northern Cape, South Africa, in October 2018 have been announced by the BLOODHOUND Project team.

Comms system prepared for 1,000mph record attempt
The BLOODHOUND project, led by Director Richard Noble and with Andy Green in the driving seat, aims to break the 1,000mph (1,609km/h) barrier, in the process obliterating Green's current world land speed record of 763mph set by Noble's own Thrust SSC Team in 1997. Last autumn, an Aero L-39 Albatros jet flew multiple passes down BLOODHOUND’s specially prepared South African desert track, synchronised with Jaguar's all-wheel-drive F-TYPE R Coupé and XF saloon, at closing speeds of up to 650mph (1,046km/h).
