BLOODHOUND Television Castrol's heritage in Land Speed Racing

Wednesday, 19 February, 2014
BLOODHOUND's new partner, Castrol, has a notable heritage in Land Speed Racing, the original, purest and fastest form of automotive competition. The land speed record has been broken 21 times with Castrol as a partner, from  Sir Malcolm Campbell’s first record attempt in 1924 (146mph / 235kmh) to a 30-year history of supporting the Thrust campaigns. Thrust successfully raised the Land Speed Record first to 633 mph (1,019 kmh) with Richard Noble’s Thrust 2, and then to 763 mph (1,228 kmh) with Andy Green at the helm of Thrust SSC in 1997. This record still stands today and will be the first target for BLOODHOUND SSC when it arrives in Hakskeen Pan, South Africa in 2015.
