Bloodhound Chases Land Speed Record in Cornwall

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

A supersonic car, aiming to achieve 1000mph speeds and thus break the current world record, is currently undergoing tests in Cornwall.

According to the Cornish Guardian, The Bloodhound, a 13.4 metre car, powered by a Rolls Royce jet engine, has been undergoing trials at 200mph at Cornwall Airport Newquay over the past week to the delight of thousands of excited members of the public and invited guests.

All being well, The Bloodhound will then be transported to South Africa where the attempt will be made next year to smash the current world land speed record.

Cornwall is becoming known as a centre for new technology, as demonstrated recently with a bid to establish a spaceport at Cornwall Airport Newquay receiving support from the US.
