The Bloodhound LSR Desert test is over and the results are in. The land speed record car has hit 628mph (1010kph). This means that it is faster than a Boeing 747. "BOOM"
For now though the car has broken its own record and not he existing record of 763.035mph, set in 1997. So that record still retains its glory.
This though is just a start of things to come from Bloodhound as they will return with a Nammo ‘monopropellant rocket’ in 12-18 month's of time. The Nammo monopropellant rocket which will deliver around 36,000bhp to complement the 54,000bhp jet is currently in development.
Worry not though because team Bloodhound are coming for it and now it has 'just' 135mph ahead. While the team did have one or two setbacks when they had to partly dismantle the car to locate and change a misfiring sensor, the test has been 'Spot on' and it has taken them a step closer to the Land Speed record.
