Tomorrow, 26 October, the Bloodhound's driver Andy Green will be putting the super sonic car through its paces in its first public outing.
The Bloodhound SSC team have been working tirelessly for the last five years on the one-of-a-kind vehicle, in the hopes it will "inspire the next generation to get involved in science, technology, engineering" and "set a new World Land Speed Record of 1,000mph".
ITV West Country Presenter, Kylie Pentelow, spoke to Andy ahead of the big event:
- *Fun fact: the Bloodhound's steering wheel is shaped to Andy Green's hand. *
Three teams from the West Country have made the national finals of Bloodhound's Model Rocket Car 2017 competition.
It's hoped the Bristol-built Bloodhound supersonic car will beat the land speed record at over 1,000mph but how does that compare?
To get to 1000mph the Bloodhound supersonic car will need a lot of power. Here's a breakdown of what it'll take in the run up to its launch.
