Every month, driver Andy Green writes his diary page bringing the project up to date from his perspective, and looking forward to what is planned next on the way to breaking the World Land Speed Record
Andy Green's diary
Watching the final assembly of the world’s first 1000 mph Car, some things are more obvious than others.
BLOODHOUND’s World Debut date has just been announced: we’re going to show the Car off with a 200+ mph run on 17 November this year.
So much to do, so little time. As we race to get BLOODHOUND ready to run this year, we’re still ordering the last of the parts that we need, and putting them together as fast as they arrive.
A fascinating thing about prototype engineering projects in general, and Land Speed Records in particular, is how they appear to move forwards in fits and starts.
As we get closer to completing the most extraordinary straight line racing car in history, it's easy to forget the most important part of building the world's first 1000 mph Car.
The pace of engineering activity on Project BLOODHOUND is simply extraordinary. We currently have some 700 unique components in manufacture
Happy New Year to everyone. I don’t know what you’re planning in the next 12 months, but for BLOODHOUND, 2015 is the year that we start running the world’s fastest Car!
2014 has been the most remarkable year yet for BLOODHOUND.
Great news this month, with the announcement of Jaguar as a main partner in our World Land Speed Record attempt. Jaguar has been involved in the Land Speed Record for over 30 years, supporting Thrust 2 in the 1980s and then helping Thrust SSC to the set the current supersonic record in 1997.
'The design is pretty much done, now we’ve just got to assemble it'. Mark Chapman was sounding confident at our recent 1K Club open day.
