The Bloodhound Super Sonic Car project has been looking to oust the Thrust project as the current holders of the land speed record (LSR). The team has designed a two-stage rocket system to propel the car at a velocity of 1050mph. The first stage is a EUROJET EJ200, the same engine as found in the Eurofighter Typhoon. The second stage is a custom designed hybrid rocket designed by The Falcon Project Ltd. This specialist rocketry company is led by self-taught rocket scientist, Daniel Jubb, 27. Bloodhound announced plans to test fire this second stage rocket system last week.
