Hopefully the Land Speed Record will be broken again in the near future by the Bloodhound SSC Project. The Car travelled under its own power for the first time in October 2017 in Cornwall - at around 200mph. In November 2019, 628mph was reached in South Africa, with hopefully the target of 800mph+ being attained in the next few years. It is currently in Coventry Transport Museum.

Team members include Andy Green and Richard Noble. They have both set LSRs - Andy set the current record with Thrust SSC on 15th October 1997 at a speed of 763.035 mph, whilst Richard set the previous record with Thrust 2 at 633.468 mph on 4th October 1983. The Bloodhound SSC Team hope to set a record in excess of 1,000 mph (Mach 1.4). What an achievement that would be! The following three photos of the Show Car were taken at The Imagineering Fair at the Country Festival at Stoneleigh on 30th August 2009. It was good to see it and to have an informative discussion with the people on the Stand. The "real" car is being built in 2013/14/15/16/17/18/19/20.
