A supersonic car built by engineers in Bristol will be fired up for the first time tomorrow.

The 'Bloodhound' is due to test its engine at in a hangar at Newquay airport.

It's hoping to reach speeds of up to one thousand miles per hour in a World Land Speed Record attempt in 2014 - that's faster than a bullet fired from a gun and well beyond the speed of sound.
