Andy Green: Fastest Man On Wheels
November 27, 2012 3:20 PM
Coming soon Jay sits down with Andy Green to discuss the future of speed.
Andy Green already holds the World Land Speed Record at 763 mph. In 2013 he's going to be driving a new British record car, the Bloodhound SSC. Powered by a jet and a rocket motor (which uses an 800 hp Formula 1 engine just to run the pump...), this Car is going to cover 12 miles in just 2 minutes and peak at over 1000 mph (yes, you read that right - one thousand mph!).
Bloodhound is all about sharing their 'Engineering Adventure', with live streaming video from the Car (can't wait to see that 1000 mph run!) and all their technical 'secrets' published on their website, www.Bloodhoundssc.com. These guys are aiming to make science and technology sexy again, just like Apollo did in the 1960s. Sign up free to their education programme at www.bloodhoundssc.com/education
