The BLOODHOUND Project started the 12-month countdown to its first Land Speed Record attempt, and celebrated Jaguar joining the programme as Innovation Partner, by staging a high-speed communications test at Hakskeen Pan, South Africa.
Ever since it was first set in 1898, the Land Speed Record has been one of the most exalted and respected of human endeavours. During the years, as the technology has changed and become more advanced, the speeds have increased to become more comparable with fighter jets than anything found on the ground. Bloodhound SSC is the latest team to set its sights on the record with a stated aim of +1,000mph. WDS is one of the companies that is sponsoring the record attempt and helping to make the impossible possible.
