stevensdrake to advise world land speed record attempt

October 26, 2017

The Bloodhound 1,000 mph an hour car will be taking its first test drive today (Thursday 26th of October) and at stevensdrake, we are delighted to announce that we are advising Bloodhound SSC on various matters as they undertake the monumental attempt at the World Land Speed record. 

The first public test drive will be taking place in Newquay today, with the car reaching up to 200 mph, to give the project team (and eager supporters alike) an understanding of what such a powerful machine is capable of. 

The real test, will, of course, be in 2019 as the car is transported to South Africa, where the team’s target is to hit over 1,000 mph - that’s 3.6 seconds per mile. If this target is reached, this would beat driver Andy Greens’ current 1997 record, by nearly 250 mph.

 The project team is made up of industry experts and is being led by Richard Noble, the record holder before Andy and current Thrust SCC director, as well as aerodynamicist Ron Ayres. 

John Lovatt, litigation partner, was in the team that first broke the sound barrier in the Thrust SSC in 1997. We at stevensdrake are extremely proud and excited to be involved in such a project and we are looking forward to continuing in assisting the project as it builds-up to the world land speed record in South Africa.
