Bloodhound Car is the Fastest Speed hits 501mph

A British team is developing a car that will be capable of reaching 1,000mph (1,610km/h). Powered by a rocket bolted to a Eurofighter-Typhoon jet engine, the vehicle aims to show its potential by going progressively faster, year after year. Current high-speed trials have seen Bloodhound top 500mph.

Test session peak speed of 501 mph to date.

Powered by a rocket bolted to a Eurofighter-Typhoon jet engine, the vehicle aims to show its potential by going progressively faster, year after year. Current high-speed trials have seen Bloodhound top 500mph.

 

The next step would be to break the existing world land speed record (763mph; 1,228km/h). The racing is conducted on Hakskeen Pan in Northern Cape, South Africa.

 

Since March 2019, the Bloodhound LSR project has been based at the UK Land Speed Record Centre in Berkeley, Gloucestershire.

 

The current world land speed record of 763.035 mph (1,227.985 km/h) which was set over 20 years ago by a British team including current driver Andy Green.

Advances in engineering design, materials and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) since the last record was broken means breaking barriers with Bloodhound LSR.

The project is helping to push boundaries and demonstrate pioneering new technologies.

 

Run Details

  • 1215 local. Slick start team work with the AST, good engine start at 50 sec, total engine running 16 min.
  • Mach No reading 0.12 before start, then appeared to be correct throughout, finishing at M=0 to 0.01 at the end.
  • Reheat accel to 353 mph peak. Car fairly stable throughout the run, with a weave close to peak speed, probably due to a gust.
  • Idle coast down, Car still doing 120 mph with 0.5 mile to go to turn, so brakes applied at 110 to ensure slow speed by the turn point.
  • Slightly tight W-turn, Car stopped into wind.
  • No further running due to gusting crosswind.
  • L brake 130C after braking from 110 to below 50 mph. AMAD peak 75C.

 

Ian Warhurst, CEO of Grafton LSR Limited said "This project has inspired so many people over the last 10 years, including both students and the wider engineering community. Engineers like solving problems and theorising about what happens when you pass the limits of known understanding. We look forward to continuing this inspiration into the future."
