The world’s most advanced straight-line racing car, BLOODHOUND SSC, will be driven for the first time, at Cornwall Airport Newquay, this October, twenty years after the current record of 763.035 mph was set. Wing Commander Andy Green steered Thrust SSC to victory on 15th October 1997 and will be at the wheel of BLOODHOUND SSC as it is put through its paces this autumn.
Runway trials will mark the culmination of a month of tests to prove the car’s steering, brakes, suspension, data systems, and so on, as well as the EJ200 jet engine, sourced from a Eurofighter Typhoon. Thousands of visitors are expected to come and see history being made as BLOODHOUND SSC is driven at speeds of up to 200mph on the 1.7mile (2.7km) long runway.
Tickets are: £60 per adult and £15 per child.
