BLOODHOUND Project Director and former World Land Speed Record holder (633 mph set in 1983) Richard Noble was interviewed for the Motor Sport Magazine podcast.
“We deployed the parachute at 600mph and immediately you had 6g deceleration,” Thrust2 driver Richard Noble tells,
“The weird thing about this extreme deceleration is that it upsets your inner ears, which give you your balance. You are absolutely convinced that you are driving vertically downwards into the centre of the earth. It’s an extraordinary experience, but soon the g comes off and you’re down to 400mph. By then it’s a bit boring really.”
