Jules Tipler from Brampton is part of a team of 30 camped out in the Kalahari desert, and are putting the jet-powered Bloodhound car through its paces during a rigorous high speed test programme.

The Bloodhound, the fastest car ever made, is a Eurofighter Typhoon jet powered car, which has already reached 501mph during the test, but the aim is to break the land speed record, 763mph.
