Hartlepool supersonic auto pilot Andy Green delighted by first public test drive

The Bloodhound auto will now attempt its full 1,000 mile per hour run at the Hakskeen Pan desert in South Africa.

The original plan had been to return to the Black Rock desert in Utah where the current land speed record of 763 miles per hour was set in 1997 by Thrust SSC, the very first land vehicle to officially break the sound barrier.

This afternoon Cornwall will play host to the first public outing of the Bloodhound SSC - the British supersonic auto created to hit a speed of 1,000mph (1,610km/h).

The engineering behind the Bloodhound SSC is fascinating.

Later in the year, Belstaff will also release two limited edition styles of sunglasses too, designed in collaboration with Andy Green for use in the African desert during the record attempts.

On Tuesday, what might well be the world's fastest-ever vehicle completed its first public test at a runway in Newquay, England.

Project leaders say the tests are a huge step towards realising the car's 1,000mph goal since its inception in 2008.

News reports that Green made two passes in opposite directions on Newquay's runway in front of 3000 spectators.

Project director Richard Noble said, however, that the 10-year project isn't just about breaking the record. The Newquay test will see the Bloodhound run on conventional rubber wheels specially adapted from an Electric Lightning jet built in the 60s. "And then to slow down, I need to apply gentle pressure to the brakes for 2 seconds to "warm up" the carbon fibre disk brakes before applying full force on the brakes to stop the vehicle".
