World's fastest car pulls up at Gaydon

Leamington Editorial 17th Nov, 2023   0

THE FASTEST car on earth payed a flying visit to the British Motor Museum.

The Bloodhound Land Speed Record car visited the museum at Gaydon on Wednesday November 8 as part of a national roadshow to find a new driver. The roadshow is offering this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attract passionate and skilled individuals who are ready to push the boundaries of speed and aspire to become part of history.

The Bloodhound LSR Project is an iconic British programme which aims not only to break the FIA Outright World Land Speed Record, reaching speeds beyond 800mph, but also to showcase world-class science and engineering.

It aims to be the first Net Zero Land Speed Record car of the modern era.

Gaydon was the car’s first pit stop. It then travelled south to London and then onto Surrey and Hampshire.

Bloodhound CEO Stuart Edmondson said, “As we enter a new chapter of the Bloodhound LSR Project, I am excited about the opportunity and challenges that lie ahead and confident that this will enable us to return to South Africa and set a new record. With a new driver, along with my aim of not using fossil fuels to set a new FIA Outright World Land Speed Record, the project promises to be exciting, engaging, and relevant at so many levels”.
