Tomorrow, 26 October, the international spotlight will be on a Bristol-built supercar, hoping to become the world's fastest, as it's tested in public for the first time.
The Bloodhound is due to eventually speed along the South African desert at a 1000 miles per hour.
Earlier today, the project received the blessing of the Prime Minister, who said it shows what a leader in sciences and innovation the UK is.
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.
